What Color IS my rabbit anyway?
Realizing that it can be very hard to recognize the fine points that help determine a color.
- Don't just look at wool color
- check for agouti markings white inner ears/lacings, white belly, white eye rings
- check eye color Pink eyes mean pointed white (Himalayan) or REW, blue/grayish color eyes means it is a dilute (lilac or blue based caused by gene pair dd) and brown eyes means full color. Marbled color eyes often is a clue that you are dealing with the chin gene (cchd)
Chestnut and Opal these are agouti colors
Fawn and Cream these are agouti colors- with wideband
Torts these are non-extension colors ee
Pearls -these will carry cchl(shaded) or cchd (chinchilla) AND ee(non-extension)
