Hello!
So we have two sisters that are 5 months old that we believe to be REWs, just want to make sure absolutely but I’m pretty sure. Here they are:

They are bonded to our 7 year old neutered Mini Lop buck. We believe he is Opal with agouti, what do you think??

(no they are not kept outdoors, they run outside supervised, that is the chicken run that is shown next to Oscar. They all live indoors, Oscar, Ruby, and Aurora are free range around the house).

Here’s our beautiful harlequin buck:

So we know what colour this guy is (his name is Thunder) but not totally sure on Ruby, Aurora, and Oscar. Also: when we’re going to breed Thunder to Ruby and Aurora what colours do you think we’ll get??? Any help on Ruby, Aurora and Oscar’s colours and they’re babies with Thunder on their colours would be greatly appreciated!!!

Looks like two REWs and an Opal to me (and all opals are agouti, so you don't have to say with agouti). Cute rabbits. They look happy.

You can't predict what colors the babies will be without having a pedigrees. REW is pretty much just a blanket over the rabbits true color so they could genetically carry and throw anything.

Oh that’s interesting! Yes, we do have Thunder’s full pedigree and we know what Ruby and Aurora’s parents look like. Ruby and Aurora have a broken grey mother and a chocolate father. Thunder has a lot of blues, tricolours, harlequins, and oranges in his pedigree so I’m hoping for cool colours!
