Chin or Squirrel? *Updated pictures*

I’ve put a deposit down on this holland lop, I was told that they thought she was squirrel (blue chin), but after seeing more recent pictures I’m wondering if she’s a black chinchilla. I’m happy either way, I’d just like to know. Thoughts?

I'm not convinced it's black chin. The kit photos looks squirrel. Check the ear tips. If they are black then it is black chin, if they are blue then it's squirrel.

I brought her home today and honestly I’m still not sure if she’s a squirrel or just a really light black chin :bunnyhop:
Just looking at her, I thought squirrel, but her eyes which used to be blue grey, look more brown now so I’m just not sure.
I have some more pictures if anyone wants to weigh in

(Ignore the scruffiness of her ears, we misted her on the drive home so she wouldn’t get too warm)

Not squirrel Possible sable agouti? I'm not great with the sable colors so maybe someone else will jump in on this one.

The kit color looks like sable agouti aka light chin. She's turned lighter than any I had with less contrast on the points but otherwise looks much the same.
