Litter colors?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby TeaTimeBunnies » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:28 pm


So I have a group of 7 that are a week old tomorrow. I know the broken black and the black Charlies, but I have one that is a blue charlie maybe? I also have two that are somewhat Dutch pattern, but their bellies are lighter in color. I also don't actually know how the Dutch patterns came about, but I have my guesses. The doe is a blue eyed broken black, and I used two bucks, one broken black vienna carrier and the other is a black/orange harlequin. Thoughts?

The dutch pattern is from the vienna & blue eyes of the parents (it can be either or both, so you cant narrow down sire based on that)

The lighter belly ones look to be probably steel.

A lot of the brokens look like tricolors

Thanks SableSteel. Am I correct though in thinking the kit 5th from the top is blue instead of black? What others look Tri-colored?

So those two Dutch marked have a little orange on them now as well as more silver ticking. Though one has silver and gold ticking. Since only one of the sires has orange I'm pretty sure they are his

The black was solid up until a few days ago. The red spot I showed behind the one Kit's ear is the only spot that is red down to the skin. The rest is ticking at the top of the hairs. There is only red, black, and silver in their coat, but they are still primarily black
