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.
I have shown: argente brun, Belgian hare, Britannia petite, dutch, English spot, Flemish giant, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Holland lop, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, netherland dwarf, new Zealand, polish, standard chinchilla, tan, velveteen lop; American & coronet cavies; muffed ice pigeons, parlour tumblers, frillbacks; brahma, dutch chickens; cortunix quail
CZECH FROSTIES ARE NOT CYLINDRICAL THEY ARE JUST COMPACTS WITH A FLAT TOPLINE

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