    I just got a new blue tort holland lop. She has a broken black mom and a solid black tort dad. Her pedigree has all blacks and black torts and one solid blue who is her great grandsire. I also have a black tort holland lop buck that has only black and black tort in his lines. I’m wondering if I could get and blue or blue tort babies? Thanks

    You're more likely to just get black torts. You need dilute (blue or blue tort) on both sides to get blue tort babies. It is possible that the black tort buck has blue tort that's just further back than the pedigree goes so you can't see it, and in that case you've got a chance for blue tort babies but you won't know unless you get any. You can't get black or blue babies, as both the parents are torts.
