Hello! I recently got a pair of holland lops that I eventually plan to breed. My buck is a black otter, and the other I'm having a hard time figuring out what she is. Any Ideas? I was also wondering what colors their babies will have the possibility of being. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello. Welcome to the forum! @SableSteel might be able to help. I think. I’m absolutely no good with breeds or colours or rabbits or yeah... All I can say is that they’re cute! 🥰

The colours will depend on what other colours they have in the genetics.

Don’t know the name in english for the colour of fur but maybe it’s called broken magpie.

Her color is black tricolor
What color the babies are depends on what genes they have. If you are breeding for show, this is not a recommended pairing; the harlequin gene that makes tricolor can add dark spots to other colors like otter and chestnut (which only matters if you are showing). If the tricolor has agouti in her lines (chestnut, orange, etc) you are most likely to get chestnuts and broken chestnuts from this pairing. If she has tan pattern (otter, etc) or self (black, tort, etc) in her lines, you are most likely to get otters and broken otters from this pairings. But if they carry other colors, you could get pretty much anything. Blacks & broken blacks if they both carry self, tricolor and harlequin if the otter carries harlequin or non-extension

Pretty much the only thing that we can guess without a pedigree on the two is that each kit has about a 50% chance of having white spotting (like the mother), and about a 50% chance of being a solid color/no white spotting (like the father)
