So I got my rabbits from ? so I have no idea what breed they are and as far as I know they could be mini Rex's and I am breeding for meat so there is a problem. lily (not petal) is charlie magpie she will lick you forever if you let her. Her fur is silky so that’s why I thought that she might be slightly Rex. Mus (is the buck) is harlequin colored. His fur is not silky but still soft, and his temper… he bit me once and almost bit me a second time. I don’t think he bites because he is afraid of me though. And if he is in a good mood then he is easy to handle. I think he might be harlequin and lionhead.

If you're breeding for meat what's the problem? All rabbits can be meat rabbits.

I think they are mixed breeds. Are they related? Seems like the heads have the same shape. I don't think she has rex fur but I'm not good at breed ID. I see a Dutch pattern in the buck but he may be a mix of several breeds.
If you can describe the shape, weight, and other features at explained in the following article, it'll help to ID what may make up your rabbits.

Both lily and mus’s fur don’t come back when I stroke it the wrong. Lily‘s fur is dense (I think) and short, and mus’s fur is thin and a little longer. He also has a tuft of fur sticking up between his ears. Lily and mus are ruffle the same weight unfortunately the only reference I have is Manila my three year old medium sized cat who is heavier then they are but not by much.

They're mixed breeds. They're definitely not mini rex, they have the wrong type. One rule of thumb when looking at pictures for rex fur type; rex usually have curly whiskers. Rex is a simple recessive gene; so having some Rex in the line won't make it slightly softer or anything. It's all or nothing with the rex gene.

I did the rabbit rescue breed finder thing and for mus the results were harlequin and mini satin. For lily it was mini Rex, blanc de hotot and harlequin.
