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:

Color changing baby bunnies happen a lot. The last litter I thought had two REWS at the beginning but they turned out to be a black and chocolate tort. Even then, the chocolate tort went through about four different color changes from day to day before it looks like he's gonna settle on probably chocolate tort.

Image
Newborns, I called them 'Pink, Pinker, Wrinkly & Black'. Kinda figured Pink and Pinker were gonna be REW.

Image
Wrinkly was looking chocolate, Pink was looking some kinda tort and Pinker some kinda lilac or blue?

Image
Something happened to Wrinkly, he just wasn't there one day. In a ratproof hutch, he's not getting out if they can't get in, but no holes, no leftover parts, no bloodstains, no nothing but no Wrinkly, either. Still don't have any idea what happened to him.

But it's looking like Pink is chocolate tort and Pinker is black tort and fortunately Black is staying Black. It's always nice when at least some bunny is consistent.
