Post Number:#1  Unread postby MrJacobTiffin » Wed Jan 04, 2017 4:37 pm


Hello I had a litter of rabbits. They were born on Thanksgiving. Mother is supposed to be a New Zealand Black. Father is Supposed to be a New Zealand White. What do you think and What colors are they. believe the grays are steel and the blacks are black. But the one has a steel color underneath the brown or red not sure. What do you think.

The picture isn't the greatest and I think I see black, gold tipped steel and chestnut which are common colours produced when red eyed whites are crossed to other colours

Could the red/brown looking one be a tort?

The two grey ones really look like blues to me. Maybe blue steels. I'd need better lighting to tell if the blacks or blues have steel.

That's the best I can do from the pic.

Maybe try taking the pics outside in natural light. The house lighting is making it very difficult.
