Holland cross color help

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Maleficent » Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:39 pm


Hey guys, I just got a color that is new to me in this litter. Mind giving me some help?

Image

Starting on the baby at the bottom of the pile and going clock wise I have a Vienna chestnut, a Vienna black (bad angle as it is the tiniest of spots on his nose only), a possible vm/vc broken black, and finally the kit whose color i can not place.

Here is another image this time from the side

One of the backs of his ears to show now they are kind of a salt and pepper coloring when he was about 2wks.

And a bonus image of their full blooded Holland half siblings who their mother fostered for someone!

I'd call it broken (possibly vm/vc) opal
maybe false charlie or charlie.

False Charlie is possible... mom was a high white trip lion head and dad a Vienna chestnut Holland. So can't be charlie. Is it possible the Vienna and broken worked together to make mostly white babies?

Yes, Vienna and broken rabbits often look like Charlie's or even hotots

There is a lot of yellow in the pictures from the lighting, shots in over-cast sunlight would likely give truer colouring but based on these photos I think I see sable chinchilla
