Is my NZ a heavy broken

Post Number:#1  Unread postby SaskTrapper » Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:24 pm


I bred my nz red doe to my nz white buck and I got six kits. Four blacks and two reds.Both first time breeding for both these rabbits. One of the black kits has a white toe but the rest of the body is black so my question is will this rabbit throw brokens or just solids?

I don't think so. Broken based NZ aren't common, and usually broken expresses more than that. I think it would throw just solids, maybe some with a tiny bit of white spotting, like it has.

It's possible, but it is also possible it's a mis-Mark and not hereditary

I need to keep a doe out of this batch so hopefully this one will be a good size and a doe so I can put it into my breeding stock and see what happens.thats for the replys I'll let you know what comes out of the litters if and when I do breed this little one.
