hi I have raised rabbits since I was about 10 but have always done castor mini Rex. Recently I got into broken tort and I purchased one broken otter buck. He ended up winning several shows and I wanted to use him for breeding. I have a GC broken tort doe, but am worried the colors will conflict. Will it be ok to breed them or should I try and purchase a broken otter doe

I would try to avoid breeding a tort and otter mini rex. A tortoise with the otter gene (sometimes called a fox, sometimes called a torted otter) is unshowable, and even if you don't get any first generation, any otter kits from that litter would carry tortoise/fox so you'd have to watch who you bred them to and warn potential buyers so they don't accidentally introduce a tort gene they might not want.
