New Zealand’s... Potential Colors?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby CDG » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:58 pm


Hello all!

I am a newbie when it comes to rabbits. I recently acquired my first breeding stock and made my first breeding. I bred a Nee Zealand Black buck to a New Zealand White doe, and I’m just curious as to what everyone thinks I might expect colorwise in the kits? What are the most possible outcomes that could occur? And what are the most common that I should probably see?

Thanks for the help!

It's really common to get steels from that cross (which isn't a showable color)

If you are planning to breed NZ for shows, it's recommend to breed whitexwhite, redxred, redxbroken red, black/bluexblack/blue or black/blue x broken black/blue
Crossing any solid color except black x blue is likely to unrecognized colors
