I love this site, and have visited it before. I just noticed you have the option to print it out, which I am doing now. :)

A great resource for color!

Can you recommend any other resources that would help identify more complex coat patterns in brokens?

Many thanks! :)

Unfortunately the modifiers that control whether a rabbit will be booted, broken or a false Charlie are not cut and dry like the colour genes

I was curious about the whole varieties and what was considered acceptable so I was reading through this. This is said about the chinchilla.

Do not breed them to Castor, Lynx, Opal or Red, as traces of the orange color will remain for generations. They should also never be bred to any shaded rabbits such as a Himalayan.


Why? It doesn't make sense that "traces of the orange color will remain for generations" since chin removes the pheomelanin from the coat. What am I missing?

Rufus factors, which are selected for in those colours, will create "smut" in chinchilla rabbits.

The chinchilla gene only eliminates 3 of the 4 yellow pigment cells and Rufus are on that 4th site.

Ahhh Ok thank you! I've heard of Rufus Factors but I'm not very familiar with them. What can you tell me about them?

I can honestly say, EVERYONE told me if I bred a Broken Castor to a broken Chinchilla (Mini Rex) two things would happen: 1. Being that they were both "broken" patterned, most, if not all, of the babies would come out Charlies. 2. The babies would all come out "smutty" ( I HATE that word).
My last litter, I didn't pedigree, because of this, and I figured if they did come out the way I just said, they would be pet bunnies, which is fine. Healthy babies are healthy babies, I'll take what I can get. They are now almost 7 months old, and none of them are smutty, and only ONE was a Charlie. I kept her, and named her Chappy. She was born in the feeder, and spent her first 20 minutes of life in my mom's bra. I decided then, that if she lived, we would keep her. Just figured I would throw this out there. :)
