    The black broken is the buck and the chocolate is the doe...The light markings on the head and nose of #3 are the only light spots...although all of the bunnies stomach's and under their legs are a tad lighter than the rest of their bodies, I'm not sure if that's usually how it is or not.

    #1- Broken Chocolate
    #2- Black
    #3- Chocolate
    #4- Black
    #5- Chocolate

    The white stripe on #3's head...there's a chance it might disappear after the first molt but if not...it could be just a barely marked broken :)
    Cute babies!! So glad they're doing good.

    You're welcome! They're beautiful babies!
    And the parents are gorgeous...I love your buck. I have a broken black doe (Holland lop) that's one of my favorites now because she gave me a REW kit!
    and a 4 week old broken black kit that I decided to keep because she's absolutely gorgeous :love
    Right now her coat is like 4 inches long...longest baby coat I've ever seen on my rabbits but she's molting and it's everywhere :p
    Do you have any more rabbits?

    Got it ;)
    I like your avatar picture! I just recently got a Siamese Sable Netherland.
    Do you have a favorite yet? As far as breeds go? :)

    I like the size/shape of the Netherland dwarfs but I find the mini lops to be so much sweeter :)

    Agreed!
    I think the Nethies are a little on the crazy side...I have some sweet ones but most of them are nutty ;)
    My Hollands on the other hand are just amazing..the nicest rabbits I've ever had.
    Last night I separated a 4 week old kit from her mom and put her In her own cage...when I went to check on her this morning she was all lonely and hiding in a corner so I put one of my 12 week old bucks in her cage with her and they absolutely love eachother. He's cleaning her and they're cuddling...He's a little on the strange side because he was aborted by his mom and he has a bit of a head tilt....but he sure is sweet :p
