    If little bunnies have the Californian markings but the color points are blue, are those points going to darken up? They are 10 weeks old.

    The bunnies aren't purebred. Sire is purebred Californian, dams are 1/2 Californian and are white with black spots. Litters contain black, a taupe color (silvery chocolate), white w black spots and a lot of Siamese marked bunnies with frosty blue points.

    Probably not at this point. If the points are blue, and you have taupe colored bunnies in the same litter, I'm pretty sure you have some sort of dilution factor from one or both parents going on there that will keep them from darkening into black points.
