If you bred a fl white to a colored mini rex(black, choc.,blue) i'm pretty sure you get a normal fured rabbit, but in what color?

Depends, I've been told that most FL's are genetically either red or steel, mine happen to be black, as thats what I got when I crossed them out. I'd breed to a black and see what I got.

You will get regular fur in this cross, but all of the offspring will carry one gene for the Rex coat. Since it is a recessive, this means if you breed back to Rex-coated rabbits in the next generation, you will get about 50% offspring with Rex coats again.

As Honorine said, color will depend on what the genetic color is "underneath" the white but I'm not familiar with the breed.
