I have seven 4 week old Mini Lops that are absolutely adorable! I’m going to be having reservations for them in one week, once they reach 5 weeks old. But of course their pickup date to go home won’t be until they’re at least 8 weeks. Want to verify on their colors before putting them up for sale in a week. Please specify every detail (such as booted, dilute, dense, tricolor, charlie, broken, etc. all that stuff - be as specific as possible with the color and pattern.) Write it as it would be on a pedigree. as a bonus, list the genotype if you’d like!

1ST BUNNY:
I believe this one is a blue/fawn tricolor. Correct me if I’m wrong. I will put out my guesses, and you can correct if it’s not right. Also is there any extra pattern you see this girl has (believe she is a doe)? Or is it just simply blue/fawn tricolor? (If that is even right lol)

2ND BUNNY:
I believe this one is a broken chestnut.

6TH BUNNY:
I believe this one is a Japanese Blue Harlequin (dilute) just like the father.

What color are parents?

I agree on 1, 4, 5 & 6
7 looks more like a Gold-tipped Black Steel
3 looks like maybe a Broken Gold-tipped Blue Steel
2 might be Broken Gold-tipped Black Steel
If you get pictures of the inside of the ears of 2 & 3 & maybe of the belly for 7 we can say more surely

The parents are Blue Harlequin (Father) and REW (mother). The father has lots of orange/black and fawn/blue tricolors as well as blue harlequins in his lineage. The mother doesn’t have a pedigree but her mother’s coloring is broken blue and father’s coloring is black tort. We took pictures of the babies right under the light so it will help to see their coloring better.

Got some more pictures of the babies.
Here is baby number 7

Thanks
7 is definitely a steel. A chestnut would have a white belly.
2 looks like a broken steel as well
3 almost looks opal, but I would still call it blue steel. The ears are light; but the banding is better for a steel. But mostly; if the siblings are steel and harlequin, there is no E gene to give. The rew mother would have to be Esej or Ese to have both steels and harlequins, and the harlequin father would be either ejej or eje. Nowhere for the E to come from to make an opal.

Okay, thank you! How would you right those on a pedigree? For example, would it be like brkn G-tipped Blk Steel? Or is that not the right abbreviation for that? I’m not completely sure how to write this on a pedigree. Thanks for the help!

brkn G-tipped Blk Steel would work. Personally if abbreviated it I would do Broken GT Black Steel (though I don't usually abbreviate the color names). Anything works as long as the buyer/owner is able to tell what color it means; there's no official set of abbreviations. A lot of the abbreviations depend on the pedigree software used. I think Evans software would do something like Steel - Black (G. Tp'd)

Ok good to know. Thank you for all the help! Thank you for all the help you’ve done for all my questions in the past as well! Really appreciate it.
