This is the most obvious of the oddballs I got out of my satins. There were some in each litter.

Sire is a chin A- B- Cchd- Dd E- and the does are sisters a black tort and a self black out of a black doe and siamese buck, both carry dilute.

This is one of the other oddballs and a chestnut for comparison.

Looks like brassy chinchillas to me. The copper on the end threw me off for a bit lol I didn't read the notes and thought that was supposed to be the same rabbit. The brassiness usually goes away after the first molt. If you look at the fourth picture; those eyes are the picture of chinchilla gray, you very rarely see that on coppers or other full color rabbits (not to say it doesn't happen).
