Need color help

Post Number:#1  Unread postby avdpas77 » Sat Dec 18, 2010 12:42 pm


Hey MoonKitten and any of you others out there that knwo your genetics. I have a few rabbit that I would like to get some genetic information on. Because I can't give any parential gene info, I suspect that you won't be able to tell be everything, but any information will help.

First up is "Irish" she is one of my does, and while she doesn't seem to be the quality of my others, I have kept her, for the time being for her color.

2nd are two kits out of the same litter.

They look to both be nice does, and I am thinking of keeping one of them.

The first one is sort of "yellow" has a plum or lavender cast, with a bluish lavender underbelly. The second is "yellow". It shows sort of a plum cast at the edges of the ears, etc, but that is the photo, she is the same color as her back everywhere except her belly which is whitish.

Thank you.

try google images for "rabbit lilac torte" or "rabbit blue torte" and see what you think.

I agree with moonkitten - they look like torts to me. First one is a black tort. The kits look like a blue tort or lilac tort, although not quite sure on the last one.

Thanks, can you tell me what gene gives the "yellow" or "red" color? or is it the absence of some gene?

An excellent site for genetics of color for most colors and breeds is http://www.rabbitcolors.info/int/en/index.html You have to sort through a LOT of images, but I bet you can find the colors.

The one kit is a blue tort and the second is a fawn..unless both parents have chocolate then maybe a lilac tort, but her eyes look too dark for that. The doe in the very first pic is a black tort.
