There are many different ways to determine a rabbit’s coat color. You can also determine the genotype of a specific rabbit by looking at examples of the animal. You can also practice determining the genotype of an animal by practicing determining the different colors. This article will walk you through the basics of coat color genetics.
The different color patterns come from different genes. These genes are responsible for the color pattern, position, and vibrancy of pigments. If a rabbit has an all-white coat, he or she will have an ata or an eye genotype. Alternatively, a rabbit with a black coat will be a white rabbit, and vice versa.
The genes that control coat color are found in two different regions of the body. The black color in the coat is determined by the dominant B gene. If this gene is missing, a rabbit’s coat will be tan or brown in color. Similarly, a rabbit with the ee gene has a shaded or brown appearance. This type of color is sometimes mistaken for a sable, but it is not a true sable color.
Besides the sable gene, a rabbit may also have a cchl gene. This gene is the dominant gene and removes the yellow pigment from the fur. This gene is found in some rabbits, including the Sable Point and the Siamese Sable. The cchl gene is also present in the ruby-eyed white.
