I am a new rabbit owner and bought 3 does and 3 bucks from a lady getting rid of them. I have one white of each - doe and buck, 1 grey/brown of each - doe and buck, and 1 black of each - doe and buck. My question is can I cross breed them or do I need to stay same color to same color?

cross breed to your heart's content,
unless-- you are breeding for certain traits... then, breed accordingly...

Even when you breed same color to same color, hidden traits can show up in babies. Even when breeding for specific colors all we can do is prioritise our probabilities and keep our fingers crossed. So if you dont care then there's no need to worry about it too much and just breed those you feel like breeding together.
