    @Bunnylady thank you so much. I was asking bc I am almost 100% positive that Thumper (being part Dutch) carries Vienna. He produces babies with 'almost vm' markings and beautiful eyes. Could he produce vm babies if bred to a vm doe?? How exactly do I test breed him?? Do I need another Dutch to breed him to?? Or do I need a bew??
    I'm sorry for all these questions

    I'm not clear on what you mean by "almost VM" markings. VM markings can be anything from a tiny white snip on the nose or a couple of white toes to what looks like a full Dutch pattern (though the blaze is often pretty lopsided, while true Dutch usually have fairly symmetrical blazes). Dutch can produce a similar range of expressions; from just a mark on the forehead to the full pattern. Though they can look alike, Dutch (Du) and Vienna (V) are NOT the same thing. A rabbit could possibly be both, but it's much more likely to be one or the other. A rabbit with Du is not going to throw blue eyes. If you are getting babies with bright blue eyes (not gray-blue, but bright blue), then you are looking at Vienna. If you breed two Vienna Marked rabbits together, one possible result is a Blue-eyed White (BEW), in addition to Vienna Marked. The only way to get a BEW is if both parents are carrying Vienna, so if you breed your buck to one of those VM does and get a BEW baby, your question should be answered. On the other hand, if he is Dutch (Du) and not Vienna (V), you could breed him to VM does until the cows come home, and not get a BEW baby.

    What I see here is the normal eye color of a chocolate (which is this rabbit's color)?

    Yes. Her eyes are a lot more bluish in person and a lot different than her mother's. He mother is a chocolate as well, but with chocolate eyes
