So long story short I've had both these bunnies since March of 2020 and could never figure out what breeds they are but since the mom Brownie just had 3 babies I thought it was time to figure it out.
Brownie is the older of the two by about 3 months while Oreo is the smaller bunny by a decent amount and from what I can tell kind of looks like a Polish bunny.
I have their ages above each picture if that helps in anyway.

Brownie - 8 months
Oreo - 5 months

These are their three bunnies yesterday. One looks pure black, one a lighter black, and one is stripes.

Looks like they may be Rex, mini-rex, but I'll leave the ID to our Show experts.

I just wanted to offer a caution on those collars. Those are extremely dangerous for rabbits. Their necks are very delicate and fragile. One sudden fright could cause them to bolt. That would almost surely snap their neck. The only safe way to leash a rabbit is to use an h-style harness.

There are photos of these harnesses on @Watermelons post on the following thread:

They have a harness nowadays but even then they were very calm. I live right next to the railroad so they got used to loud noises within the first few weeks before we brought them outside to let them play in the grass. Both Brownie and Oreo even managed to befriend a local cat that would hang out with them when they went outside with me.

That's great! Be sure it is the correct style of harness. Only the h-style is safe -- even though there are many other types for sale. Even if your rabbits are calm, you never know what could startle them... even the shadow of a hawk overhead.
