Kit color guide
This is still under construction, so give us some time to get organized and gather enough pictures. We will post them as they come in. Posted are pictures of kits of varying ages and their matching colors. Have a kit you can't identify? Email me!
A close up of a broken black and a broken chestnut. The broken black is on the bottom and the broken chestnut is on the top. The chestnut has a faint brown tint to it, as well as the tell tale white ears and belly.
Oranges and broken oranges. The slight difference in hue is due to the "rufus" factor, which determines how much red is in the coat. In English Lops, an orange with high rufus is called orange, and low rufus is referred to as fawn. Genetically there is no difference.
A close up of a self and an agouti. Again, note the white inner ears on the Opal kit.
Believe it or not all of the rabbits to the left are the same color. They are all black torts, either broken or solid.
These are sable and blue points. It is hard at this age to tell the difference, although a sable point is generally slightly darker. It is much easier once eyes are open. Blue points have blue/gray eyes and sable points have brown eyes.
This is a young frosty kit. It looks just like a REW, but if you look close you can see some faint color on the ears.
This is a magpie kit. A magpie is a chinchilla harlequin. You can tell the difference between a magpie and a harlequin because there will be no orange.
This is a harlequin kit. You can see the stripes and the orange coming in as well.
This is a black/orange tri color kit. The color appears slightly washed out because of the flash.
This is a broken magpie kit. It may appear at first glance as a broken black, but look at the ears. The ears will always show the try magpie pattern.
This is a litter of chinchillas
The three to the left are blue chins, and the three on the bottom are black chins. You can see the classic agouti markings (light inner ears, bare triangle on the neck and pink bellies) as chin is an agouti based color.
These are two brand new REWs. They appear bright pink and will remain pink after day three when other rabbits show color.
These are two older black chinchilla kits.
