This is our pet rabbit Callie. When we got callie she was with 3 other white rabbits. The other 3 are clearly New Zealand White’s but Callie was thought to be a mix but as they are getting older is it very apparent they are all nothing alike & my knowledge on rabbit breeds is very slim so I figured before we just gave up and didn’t have a clue what she is I’d come ask you all.

Thank you both!! No one really had a clue awhile back when we thought they were all from the same litter I had posted because Callie looked like she wasn’t getting enough food or anything because she is so small compared to them. But the difference in eyes always threw me off. Callie has half a blue eye on the other side while the other half is brown and her other eye is completely brown. But all her “siblings” are red eyed & very white LOL

Just white with red eyes isn't enough - many breeds have a REW color pattern.We have a "What Breed is my Bunny?" key here on RO which might help you identify your bunny's breed. By answering questions, it will lead you down a "tree" to some breeds to look at. The page can be found at https://www.rabbitsonline.net/threads/what-breed-is-my-bunny-start-here.77893/
That’s where I started before I posted the thread, none of the photos show up for me. I’ve tried looking on both my computer & phone :/

Here are some better pictures with the best cooperation I could get. LOL! Callie is approx. 6 months old but the person we got her from wasn’t quite sure and she is around 3.5 lbs :)

Her snout is a straight giveaway...she is a Creme De' Argent with a Florida white..google that breed "Creme De' Argent" on google images and you should see how well your bunny resembles the breed :)

The partial blue eye is the Vienna gene. If you double the VG, you get blue-eyed white rabbits. Same goes with the albino (Ruby-Eyed-White) gene. I would assume one of your lovely bunny's parents carried the Vienna gene and, being recessive, when not matched with a REW set of genes, you get the normal color with the blue in eyes. As far as breed goes though, your rabbit just looks like a mix with some California or Himilayan genetics mixed in.
