Could you post pictures of some of your rabbits? That way we could help you try to figure out their genotype, which will give you a solid guess as to what the kits could look like with different pairings. If you've tracked what color kits you had from previous pairings that will help too.

If you know the genotype of what you have, and the genotype of what you want, you should be able to figure out a cross to get that rabbit, or determine if you need different genetics to cross with to get the results you want.

Just looked up the cinnamon, looks like it's a chocolate agouti A- bb C- D- E-

This may not be the case, but with one of my gray lops he turned almost completely yellow during his first shed and then went back to a gray/gray sable color.

Ok..I have a NEW BUNNY.. that I bought, just to breed with the black tort that I bred....when i saw a picture of him from the breeder I only sa2 his nose...I thought he might be a ‘cinnamon’..after reading up on the colour. I figured it would be great to add to my line. First the breeder told me that this 13 week old bunny was a doe...oops..it turned out to be a buck! Maybe better because now I can use him to cross with my many NZ? When I bought him..it was clear to me he was not a cinnamon..or, maybe he is, but I’m leaning more toward a black tort as well..or even his body shape looks like a Japanese harlequin...which..I’ve been looking for, because I just like the tri colour. This guy isn’t really tri, except for a white foot, which is why I’m thinking might not be a black tort..plus those ears..oh my goodness, I love those ears!! They are adorable!! I got him for a steal! $15! Guy didn’t know what he had...his other bunnies were a rip off, so, it evened out..🤣❤🐰. So, if all can look at this little fellow, and think of what he could be? The guy said he was an NZ....which is another reason I was thinking cinnamon or the tort, since I read the cinnamon cane from NZ wayyy back. Ok, here are his pictures...thanks!
