Hi,

I'm unsure as to what breed my rabbits are, and hoping you can help me. They are both 16 weeks old and siblings from the same litter. Please find attached some pho.tos. . Looking forward to hearing back from you. Many thanks

Answer
Hi kelly,

Both of your rabbits appear to be mixed breed rabbits. The color is broken black, to be more specific a "charlie" broken black. I do not see one specific breed that stands out, more than likely they are a meat breed mix. They are cute! Good luck with them!
