    The other day I had a bunch of rabbit does dropped off. Now I'm trying to figure out their breed(s). What do you guys think?

    Just guessing: Non Show quality English spots and a Satin? How much do they weigh and how old are they?

    all look like mixed breeds...
    lily may be a non show quality english spot, but all the other brokens have blanket patterns so they dont have anything to do with the english spot...prolly a netherland dwarf/lop mix
    the steel looks like a satin, but the color isnt a recognized color...

    Spots is guessed to be a year or less
    Patches is guessed to be a year
    Skittles & Lilly are guessed to be over 2.

    I think they are too big to have any dwarf in them, all are over 6 pounds.

    Maybe Patches and Lily are (whole/part) checked giant. I was thinking Spots as a Tri-color English spot. People always guess Dwarf or Lop. I have a pair of now certain Flemish Giants that people on here said were Mini Lop crosses. If i hadn't found a FG breeder i'd still be in the dark. The both weigh a little over 9lbs now.
