Dutch colors are fun. You could get a ton of colors from what you have. Do you happen to have papers for them? I bought steels, bred the, and got a couple blacks. So steel may be a possibility.
No papers on mine. I'll learn as I go on the colors I guess.

a chocolate and white Dutch buck and doe.
Chocolate is recessive, so if you breed two chocolates together, you'll get chocolate (though there are some unshowable possibilities like lilac and chocolate tort if the breeder wasn't careful about what they were breeding)

She had some papers on the Harlequins but I'm not sure how good they actually are. The markings on the does aren't perfect and I think the buck is a Japanese/Magpie mix.
Take it from someone who bred Harlequins for many, many years - perfect Harlequins never happen. Even grand champions are only "good enough to beat whatever else is at the show today.":heFrom what I can see, your animals stand as good a chance as any of producing something showable.
