Well, I'm considering going into Holland Lops and so I was looking at all their possible colors. And yes it makes me dizzy just thinking about all the possibilities. The way I understand it there are the different groups, well can these groups be bred together? I know it seems that only some colors can be bred with certain other colors, but do you generally have stick within the same group? Are there any sites you all know of that can be of some help with all of this? I just don't want to go to a site and learn the wrong thing so I figured you all could point me in the right direction lol Thanks!

Many of the lop colors can be crossed. One of the crosses that should be avoided is the otters with any non-extension colors, which can produce tort otters.

There are very few points based on color, so color quality isn't a major consideration in the Lops as it is in some breeds.

You can do:

self x self
self x shaded
self x agouti
self x tan
tan x agouti

I basically would just steer clear from shaded x agouti in most cases...
