When genetics desire to trip you

Post Number:#1  Unread postby golden rabbitry » Wed Apr 03, 2019 3:21 pm


So my doe had 7 babies a few weeks back and one of them started changing colors, first he was like a sand otter, then his ears went red, and now he is like, just odd. He has a sand colored otter with grey ears and nose with a funny tail and I honestly don't know what color he is. I was researching everywhere and apparently it isn't a real color. This has been bugging me for weeks and i was hoping if any of you guys knew what color he was. He is a rex and has most everything like a rex. His ears are much more grey than in the picture. It looks like someone smeared ashes on his nose and ears and a bit on his front feet

I agree, torted otter
at_ B_ C_ D_ ee
It's not a showable colour in any ARBA breed (but I believe rabbit clubs in the UK call the colour "fox" and it can be shown in some breeds) but there are MANY colour gene combos which aren't ;)

I had never seen it before when I got my daughters rabbits a few months ago and now I have one of my own from rabbits totally unrelated to any she had.

How funny for so many to be showing up now! :lol:
