 Lethal Mouse Colors?

I am an owner of horses, which 2 of my horses have the lethal white gene ( the babies are born pure white and always die soon after birth). I was wondering as a beginner mouse breeder if I should watch out for any colors like this? Like are there any lethal colors in mice?

No ...as a matter of fact the white mice ( lab Mice) produce signifigantly more young per litter that the colored mice....12-15 each (white) as compared to 7-9 ea (colored)
