    so i have a colony of rabbits, new zealand and silver fox does and a silver fox buck. i found a nest, it had 4 brown kits in it, and 3 black kits in the same nest. the fur was all white. are these all siblings, or could this be two separate litters in the same little nest?

    There is no telling. 7 is a perfectly reasonable number for a litter from rabbits of this size, so they are very likely to be siblings. Does are more likely to chose separate nest sites if possible, but they also might kindle in the same nest if choices are limited.
