General Q&A

What does a Fawn look like?
OK, so now that you've seen how Lynx develop and are familiar with what a Lynx looks like, what does a Fawn look like?
Fawns can vary greatly in appearance from that of resembling a Lynx (almost to the 'T') to a beautiful pale straw coloration that is also commonly referred to as "Cream" in other breeds.

As I do testbreedings and as they appear in other litters, I will be updating this page to eventually show the vast spectrum of color possibilities with this


The Smut Free Fawn (aka: "Clean Fawn" or "Cream")
Let's start out easy and show you the development of a 'clean' pale straw colored Fawn. At birth, these clean Fawns will look pretty much identical to REW's. Sometimes it's difficult to tell these Fawns apart from REW's until the fur starts to grow in - usually between 2-5 days of age depending on how 'clean' the color is on the Fawn. They are pink to pinkish red at birth. Unfortunately, I do not have any birth pictures to show you at this time, but I will add some as they appear in my testbreeding litters.




The pictures above shows a Fawn and a REW at 9 days old. Close-up and detailed pictures of the Fawn are also shown. This particular Fawn has a very clean gorgeous pale straw coloration that makes it somewhat difficult to clearly see the Agouti markings on the belly, eyes, inside of the ears, nostrils, and jaw line.





Now at 20 days old, the white Agouti markings are much more evident against the pale straw coloration. Notice how there is no evidence of 'smut' or lacing, or ticking to the fur? The pale straw coloration begins at the tip of the hairshaft and gradually fades into a white undercolor at the base of the hairshaft.


Fawn and Lynx - Side by Side
I'll first apologize for the poor picture quality, they were taken on my old camera in poor lighting.
A friend brought over a rabbit of hers that she was unsure of the color - whether it was Lynx or Fawn - so I took the oportunity to photograph the rabbit side by side with a Lynx. The Lynx will always appear on the Right in the pictures, since Lynx are always right and the Fawn left. (Bad pun, I know! LOL)

Fawn - notice color is at the top of the hair shaft, then quickly fades into white then continues down to the skin... there is absolutely NO intermediate band.

Fawn belly color - notice how some of the undercolor is peeking through? It's not dove grey in color, but warmer cream similar to the top color.

Fawn Ears - This one was pretty clean in color, notice how the ears are creamy in color, just about identical to the body color... there is absolutely NO lilac hue.
