What color is Donna's runt?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Katduck » Tue Mar 16, 2010 12:04 pm


Here is the runt from Donna's litter at 3 weeks old. It's growing fine, just smaller than the others. I call him Gorgeous George. :D The rest of the litter is all blue or maybe even lilac torts. What color is this? Is it a version of the black or chocolate tort? Donna is Chocolate Satin. Sire is Blue Pearl French Angora.

Black tort. AKA the most common color in my barn right now - lol. Probably 75% of my rabbits are currently (black) tort.

Yes, he is looking more and more like the black tort from the first litter. It's so funny how you can breed the same two rabbits together and get such different results. The first pairing of Donna and Twitch resulted in 9 with 3 smut, 3 torts of different colors, a blue, a sable point and a sable. This second pairing she had 11 and 4 were smuts, 1 black tort and all the rest are the same color tort (either blue or lilac).

What do you mean by "smuts"?

I think that the correct term. They are white with just a little grey on the nose, maybe a little on the outsides of the ears.

Yes, but not complete. Donna has a California Satin in her background and I figure that's where it comes from. But it's not a nice full presentation, just a dirty nose.
