What color is my singleton?

I bred my two half rex rabbits together and got this little guy. I'm confused about what color he is and if he is rex or not.

Looks like a chestnut/castor.

I agree

Chestnut, called castor in Rex, and I do believe the kit is Rex coated :)

I vote chestnut/castor, too! And looks to have rex fur... Any chance you could get us a clear picture of his whiskers? If they're curly, I'd say rex fur is a yes.

Thanks! I think you've got some crinkly-looking whiskers there (correct me if I'm wrong), so looks like it may have inherited that rex coat after all! :D
