    So I have a Siamese sable I bred to a bew both purebred Holland lops ( also a pairing I will not try again) she produces four healthy kits that are now four weeks old and I have no clue what color they are considered all have a slate blue undercolor and not pictured they have a solid blue sibling

    Thank you but I seems like every thing I read points to chocolate but I personally think that they are really dark to be chocolate and most people gave told me to look at genetics which gets me no where given the fathers whole line is blue eyed whites and the mother's is entirely sables Siamese sables and broken blacks with one broken chocolate otter as the great grand dam on the fathers side and I haven't seen any others that colors even look close in comparison

    They look like they fit into the Seal category to me... hope you find out what colour they are... if you have any ‘proper’ breeders around (not people who breed for money and don’t really care about the rabbits at all...) you could ask for their advice

    Thank you I was thinking maybe a really dark smutty chocolate but seal does sound like a possibility and I will try to get a hold of a reputable breeder

    Sable most likely. The shine on their coat points that way.

    Could anyone give a tip to what you would call this coat colouring? Thanks
    It looks black but undercoat is brown/white/gold 2B431CA6-0264-4D65-90E7-093EACD68CF4.jpeg
