    Champagne X Broken Red New Zealand Litter

    These kits are five days old now and I was so happy to see some color variations in this litter, as my last litter of purebred Champagnes were all one color (as they should be). Anyway I don't know what to call these colors....

    Yay thanks Deb! [​IMG]

    But.. the broken has some brown in it's face...does that still make it a broken blue? And which are the Red and Fawn? LOL I feel so stupid asking..but I really don't know. If they were puppies I'd say they were: black, dalmation, orange sable and red.....LOL

    Quote:The color is determine within 7 days of birth, no matter what happens with their coat as they get older. The brown may be just be a part of it's nose and will even out. I have a chestnut agouti that is changing daily, but it is a chestnut agouti. Same with my broken blue.

    www.northernwindsranch.com rabbits, gallery. Take a look at the broken blue at birth, two weeks and 4 weeks. You'll see what I mean.

    I don't know the colors, but OMG are they adorable. I bet they feel like velvet!

    I miss having bunnies. I'm hoping sometime next year I can get a hutch up.
