black japanese in colouration. many breeds carry that. the size of them suggests they might have harlequin in them. Do they have normal length fur?

Yep - they are the Japanese variety of a harlequin. They look like black japanese harlequins, from the picture. Might be blue?

they probably get their colouration from the rex I should think...harlequin is fairly common in rexes.

I agree with Ladysown that their harlequin coloration/brindling probably came from the Rex part of the mix, especially because the doe's ears don't look anything like my Harlies- they are shorter and wider than I am used to seeing. They should make fine meaties for you. :)
