    The look like harlequins to me. One black Japanese, and one black magpie.

    Yep, harlies. Not the best markings, but I've seen far worse. They look like MR, are they? The darker has a nice head for a female, especially if they are mini rex.

    Thank you Lisa, BellsBunnies, and Reauxman. Yes, they are mini Rex.. The doe is a Blue, and the buck a Black otter (I believe that is what he is called). These two girls colours were a bit of a shock to me . Also got a male black otter, and another female who at first i thought was a Blue, though looking more like a chocolate, though the undercoat is white?

    I thought the darker of these two was a tricolor. Many many thanks !!

    Hey, Elinore! Pretty bunnies! :cute: Are they new?

    The second one has very petite ears compared to the first. Just makes you want to cuddle her. :)

    No, not Tri. The darker would work well with a orange/black tri program.

    Hi Maggie,
    Yes, Marble's ear's are smaller, though still too long! Neither of them are show quality i know, but i do love them to pieces. They are sort of new, they are just 3 months old, well, just shy of. I am still trying to learn the colours though.

    I still don't know what the difference is between Black Silver Marten's and Black Otter's. They both look the same to me. sigh..

    I really do like the Harlequin's though, despite they are Non-Recognized Colors!

    hugs..
