    I’m wondering if I can breed an orange Holland lop with a broken black tort holland lop. The orange is the buck and he carries dilute and chocolate. Both of his parents were orange/chocolate harlequins. I haven’t gotten the doe’s pedigree yet. If I did breed these two what might I get? Thanks!

    You can breed those two. You're likely to get orange and broken orange.

    If the orange carries self you're likely to get black tort and broken black tort as well. If the tort carries dilute you might get creams or broken creams too. If the orange carries self and the tort carries dilute, you might get blue torts and broken blue torts too. If the orange carries self and the tort carries chocolate (note: most torts do not carry chocolate unless they come specifically from chocolate lines) you might get chocolate torts and broken chocolate torts as well (and if they both carry blue and chocolate and self you might even get lilac torts and broken lilac torts).
