    I just bred my two Lionhead buns about a month ago and my doe is about to give birth. My doe is a Black Tort. My buck is a chinchilla. Both are purebred double maned lionheads. What do you think the babies will look like? This is their first time being bred together so I'm curious how it will turn out.

    Exciting! If you showed photo of parents, then it would be much easier to predict what the babies will look like.;)

    @Mini Rex Rabbiters MN your bunnies look absolutely lovely! I have a blue Magpie mini Rex and I absolutely adore him! (Although I have to house him outside because he sprays urine.)

    Whenever I look for a new breeding rabbit I use http://www.ephiny.net/tim/pedigrees/color_calc.php to determine what kind of offspring I can expect. It has been very useful! Although there is sometimes that unexpected color that pops up in a litter, rabbit genetics are definitely fun :p
