Is this rabbit opal? Or a different color?

Yeah, that is what I thought. Especially since her dam is a A_B_c(chd)_DdEe.

The reason I am asking is I am looking into getting another doe to widen my color genetic pool, and I am trying to figure out her genotype. She is a black chinchilla it seems, but she has had very colorful litters.

Here are two from another past litter, what color do you think they are? I was thinking Chocolate sable point, Siamese Sable, and Sable point, but I would appreciate a second opinion as I have never gotten any of these colors before. :)

The first two look like broken sable points (one just looks a lot darker than the rest - they vary a lot in color. I don't see chocolate). The solid looks like a Siamese Sable
