My dad and I own a rabbitry and in doing so it takes a little understanding of what we could possibly get from breeding two different varieties together. I raise American Dutch Rabbits and am a current member of both the ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association) and the ADRC (American Dutch Rabbit Club). At the time I decided I wanted to start breeding for the Chinchilla variety I only had the means of getting one Chin buck. so in order to build up my stock I had to figure out a way to get the desired variety with what I had. The color pattern is very similar between both the grays and the chins and through online breeding programs and the ADRC site I found that the genotype for color is identical except for the additional chd factor in the chins C group. So through trial and error and occupying a lot of space for this breeding program I was finally able to get the desired variety and am now on of the only people on this side of the country with this coloration of American Dutch rabbits.
