The Broken Gene

The broken gene is represented as En in the genotype.  The broken gene is dominant and is always expressed and visible, except with a REW.  Non-broken rabbits are shown as enen in the genotype.  Never breed a broken rabbit with another broken rabbit.  Doing so would result in charlies, which are unshowable, and every judge will recognize a charlie.

Brokens are one of our favorite colors of rabbits.  For those who don't know, brokens have a spotted pattern.  The background color is always white.  The spots can be any showable color except pearls.  Ideally, the color covers 40-70% of the rabbit.

This chocolate broken has the genotype aabbCCDdEEEnen.
