Question
My sons have a Harlenquin mini Rex doe and Broken black mini Rex buck who won his class, best fur and Best if Show. My question is, are these color patterns compatible? Would it be okay to breed them? Thank you for your time and advice.

Answer
Hello there.
the answer to your question is complicated..
You can breed them but the result may give you tri-color brokens. If not the 1st generation but the next,  If this is what you want I would  that is good but I  would stay away from that pairing
