    found out she is probably a vienna which is very close to a BEW :D

    I was going to say it sounds like a vienna marked frenchie.
    The vienna gene is not close to a BEW it is what makes the BEW.
    It takes two vienna genes to make a pure BEW rabbit.
    Any pics Frags?

    no pics clair but i just went to see her and ive put a deposit on her and while i was there i noticed another white with blue eyes who was from another litter it was a buck so i managed to hold him too :D
    thing is his mum is fawn and his dad is aguoti butterfly so god know how her rabbits are having whaites with blue eyes.
    so a white with cream patches and blue otter = a white with blue eyes (may turn to be a vienna)
    and a fawn and a aguoti = a white blue eyes

    how?

    She must have bought vienna carriers and then putting two carriers together will produce the BEW.
    If you do go down that route remember the vienna is a recessive gene so you need two to make one.Also they are not showable.
