    Rabbit 6 looks like a Squirrel and 7, 11 and 12 look like Chestnuts. 8, 9, 10 and 13 look like Chinchillas :)

    6 is a Chin, not a Squirrel. Squirrel is a dilute Chin; the ear lacing and tail are much too dark for a dilute.

    Pictures can do weird things, and (as I said in a previous post) baby colors can be muddled, poor representatives of the mature coat color. For these reasons, you have to look for details, not go on generalized impressions.

    This is the picture of #6's nose:

    Those whiskers are black. No dilute has black whiskers; they are either blue or white on a dilute. Therefore, no matter how washed-out the rest of the coat may appear, this has to be a full-colored rabbit, so it can't be a Squirrel (dilute Chinchilla). Chins can vary quite a bit, there is a very light variation known as a "Ghost Chin" that is so light, it resembles a Frosty, but as long as the pigment that is present is black, not blue, it isn't a dilute and therefore not a Squirrel.:old
