I know the pics are not great, but am trying to find out if this little guy is a lynx or fawn or something different...who knows? 😅 His mother is an Opal and father is Blue Otter...the mothers pedigree shows Tri-blue/fawn and Self Blue parents, but also has lilac and Harlequin and Chocolate ind Grand Dam and Sire...father's pedigree has been misplaced but past breeding to a black otter provided 1 self blue, 2 black otter 3 blue otters and a very poorly colored light fawn and blue brindling so possibly poor harlequin ...oh almost forgot..nails are light tinted but not white and eyes are brown but have a ruby cast..Any comments or help appreciated

Looks fawn, but an Opal bred to a blue anything can't produce fawn. Are you sure of the parents?

Blue fawn is an option and that's what it looks like to me.

Opal: AaB_C_ddE_
Blue otter: ataB_C_ddEe
Blue fawn: A_B_C_ddee

The opal must also carry non-extension if this is the case. (Ee)

When I bred this male blue otter to another doe black otter ended up with 1 self blue, 2 blue otters, 2 black otters and this little doe...he seems to always throw a curve ball offspring...lol..the black otter is of unknown line and mixed Rex so was just experiment on color.

Hmm, in English angoras, I don't know if we have an official 'blue fawn'. Cream is A _ _ dd ee, but creams are usually lighter, I think.

Blue Fawn is a good name for what color your bunny could be. Is it a Rex?

This could very well be possible they were breeding for tri colors where I got her...if my little understanding of the E gene is correct she would have been trying or hoping for Ee genetics.

If they were breeding for tricolor then a fawn "ee" would be helpful since tricolor is eje or ejej. Full extension "E" in the tricolor would turn things harlequinized instead of harlequin.

A_B_C_ddEej would be a harlequinized opal instead of a blue fawn tricolor.

So they would ideally be trying to get away from full extension E and save the non-extension ee back to breed to a rabbit that is/carries ej.

Anyway, hope this helps with your doe! She's so soft and delicate looking. 🤗 Such a pretty color.

Thank you...only thing it's a buck...I want to keep him but don't need another buck 😅...guess it's decision time since this little guys father is coming up on 5 years old might be time for him to retire.
