Are These Kits Opal?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Eclaire » Tue May 29, 2018 2:01 pm


Hi! I am a first time rabbit breeder and I bred a netherland dwarf pair (the doe is broken opal and the buck is black otter). I was wondering if these kits are solid opal? Thanks a bunch!! :)

Unless your doe carries otter (in which case the kit *might* be a blue otter), I'd say yes, that's a cute little opal you've got there! :oops:

Opal is one of my favorite colors... love it! :D

The kit could be blue otter if the doe carries self as well because self is recessive to otter.

I also think opal, just a darker, more blue variety
