    dont quote me on this because I dont breed bunnies but I think a charlie is a mismark broken meaning they dont have enough spots to meet the standard for their color, they wouldnt be show quality. But I think Charlies can be used breeding in certain situations and obviously they make good pets.

    CutiePieAcres is right. A "Charlie" is a broken (think Pinto) who has too much white on him/her.

    Edit: Forgot to say, congrats on getting a new bun. I used to raise Hollands and just love them! Please post pics when you get your new fluff ball.

    Charlie= a color pattern that doesn't conform to an exsisting accepted pattern...may not be able to show it but fine for a pet.

    aww what a cute little baby! I love them at that age just so fluffy with little faces, and they are cute when they grow up too.

    Your bunny is beautiful. I love that color, I had a couple Netherland Dwarfs in the same color, so pretty!
