Someone had a link to a site which showed examples of each color and each pattern and some combinations. I do not have it available, but if anyone does, it might be a great help to hoodat.

Excellent site with actual photographs of rabbits...many many many colors, breeds, types. Although it does NOT explain why a particular rabbit is considered that color/pattern right there with the picture. There are a LOT of articles on the site, tho, and loads of genetic information: http://www.rabbitcolors.info/int/en/index.html

by the way...about BROKEN...typically, the MAIN color of the rabbit shows on the nose and around the head. (and not just for BROKEN, but tort, etc. ... broken black will have a black head/nose with white patches..even ONE white paw. chocolate tort will have a brown nose/head and fawn/orangy wool, etc.)

The following user would like to thank Anntann for this post

2 issues--first "binkies" the jump for joy move made by really happy rabbits, generally early morning....this term is silly to me. I think of infant pacifiers. We need a better word for this. I suggest J4J--jump for joy.

second thing--"legs" The first time I saw a rabbit with three legs for sale I was astounded, but even moreso when I saw a rabbit with 6 legs listed for sale....what the heck? It turns out that "legs" just means how many show wins the rabbit has...I'm sure it's really important at some level...maybe someone can explain it to me.

This thread is hilarious.

It took me a while to learn the show jargon. Also I've had a problem finding bunnies at first, because I didn't know that MR and REX were different. I've had a mini Rex before, but it never occurred to me that they had a big brother, the Standard Rex, and I have to specify that to people who want pet bunnies now. It causes havoc in the search engines when I am looking for new stock, it keeps coming up with mini rexes.

I agree. I like J4J. Or maybe we could adopt a skiing or surfing term... even gymnastics. I'm not familiar with the lingo though. Maybe "Gettin' Hare (air)"...

Okay, I'm brand new here and I don't raise rabbits (I'm a writer doing research for a fictional fantasy book), but I'm confused.

I understand that scf = sex change fairy, but WHAT THE HECK IS A SEX CHANGE FAIRY??

Also, what does "mental rabbit" mean? Does that mean the bunny's crazy?

Please, clairfy cos I'm very confused!!

Thanks,
Veronika

:lol:

Sex Change Fairy explanation: When rabbits are young, it is easy to misidentify the sex. You can think you have a young doe for a couple of months, and then one day as you inspect it for health or an upcoming show, you find descended testicles (the testicles are not visible until the rabbit is about 14-16 weeks old, when they descend). The Sex Change Fairy has visited your rabbitry. Of course, the rabbit was a buck all the time, it's just that you were convinced it was a doe. Someone on here described taking a buck to a show, and the judge was the one who found it was actually a doe! So we say the SCF struck again! If you have a young rabbit that you think is a doe, and want it to be a doe, you might say that you hope the SCF doesn't visit. :)

Mental Bunny = unpredictable rabbit. For instance, maybe it comes up sweetly for head scratches one minute, then turns on you for no apparent reason the next. You never know what personality you are going to get when you approach it. I haven't had a mental bunny, so maybe someone who has will chime in. :lol:

Is the Rabbitcolors site just whoever posts as a guess as to the color or ??? I see colors that are marked some thing else that I've never heard of show wise or rarely heard them called before when some one mentioned x was also y on a board that had other rabbit breeders from other places in it (Australia and Europe comes to mind).

You're welcome, and welcome to RabbitTalk! Be sure to post pictures of your baby buns when they arrive; we thrive on pictures, especially of babies! :D

Are you talking about the "Rabbit Colours and Genetics" section on RabbitTalk? It's for any discussion on color and genetics. Some people know more than others, so some answers are more of a guess than others (but they'll usually say as much).

I do know that terms for a particular color can vary from breed to breed, and from country to country. :shock:
