I cant find a good pic.
I have since learned that her 1/2 sister is a chinchilla, but is that the breed or a color?
The 2 females in question are in the same hutch are 1/2 sisters that have the same father who is my male in the video.
Neither of their mothers looked like purebred anything.
The father is either flemish or has flemish in him.
Can you please post a pic of YOUR vienna rabbits so I can get a better understanding of them?
Im still learning about rabbits.
Does the color determine breed, or vice versa, or am I just way out in left field here and should shut up?
ETA- I was gonna go with part NZ for the one you call vienna.
Still dunno if THATS a color or a breed . . .

'Chinchilla' is both a breed and a color, it's a very, very pretty ticked gray. The breed is called American Chinchilla, and the color is found in many other breeds and regular mixed breed bunnies. One of my favorite does was a chinchilla color rabbit, she was extremely neglected and unfortunately passed after two weeks of fighting. She had a thing for licking feet
'Vienna' is just a term used for carriers of BEW, which also isn't a breed yet. I'm hoping to work towards making it an actual breed, both in Standard size 5-7lbs. And Mini, 1-3lbs. Vienna's can have a HUGE blaze, white feet, and a band. Or they can have just one tiny little white toe, I almost marked one for sale like that. I then flipped her over to clip her nails and surprise! White toes!
I also had a Broken Orange Vienna, she had a big blaze and partial blue eyes.
Right now all I have are the larger guys, but I'm expecting litters soon
One of my more loudly marked Junior Opal bucks
Another more loudly marked Chestnut doe, she's bred to an Ermine (white with brown eyes) buck.
Black Steel Doe, showing much less nose white. I have one with just BARELY any, and of course the one with none at all (she only has half her ears, too).
My favorite Junior Opal Doe, she also just has a little triangle on her nose.
I don't have any pictures of my half-eared white toed girl yet, but she's pretty cute as well
