    I have a white/black (seal point) male and I’m wondering if it would be better to breed him with a grey female or black female. Both of the females are from the same litter with dad being a white/black seal point and mum is grey.
    I am hoping for more of a solid coloured bunnies instead of patchy/spotty bunnies.

    Thank you,

    Hi, mind, I'm pretty much a rookie on this topic ;)

    I'm not sure "grey" is an official colour, do you mean agouti, or something else?

    Patchy or not, that only comes from dad now, he has one broken ( ENen) gene, and 50% of his offspring will have it too if the does are solid.

    Pictures would help a lot, there are other broken genes besides the EN, like the vienna gene.

    The white rabbit below is my male rabbit when he was a bit younger. Apparently this is also the same colour of both of the females dads.

    The females mums are the light grey colour.

    As both females come from the same parents I am wondering if I should get a grey female or black female and what their litter colours a might be.
