Blue Eyed White Holland Lops
The Blue Eyed White (BEW) is a white rabbit with blue eyes. It is not genetically related to the Red Eyed White (REW). It is its own color.
BEW Carriers can have small white patches of fur on their body. Some have white patches on other parts of the body and many BEW carriers do not show any white marks. If a baby is produced in a litter from a BEW to another colored rabbit lets say a black and a colored baby is born, it will carry the Vienna gene for sure, even if it does not have any visual signs of it. The gene that is responsible for the production of the blue eye is called the Vienna gene and it is present in ALL rabbits. The Vienna gene shown in a genotype using the letters V V. A rabbit which is not visually a Blue Eye (and does not have any Vienna breeding behind it) or a carrier of Blue Eye, has two dominant Vienna genes (V V) The gene ONLY comes into play when the recessive gene appears.
The recessive gene is depicted in the genotype with a lower case v - (v). When two recessive genes marry up you will see the resulting baby is a Blue Eyed White (v v). If only one gene is present in the rabbits genetic makeup it will be a carrier (V v). Carriers show themselves in different forms. The carrier of the Vienna gene has had many names over the years and we see different ideas of what it should be called from country to country. Some people call them Sports, others Vienna Marks. It matters not what they are called, as long as we understand the genetic makeup of the rabbit in question. I call them Vienna Carriers if they have no visible white spots and Sports, or Vienna Marked, if they have blue eyes or the white spots.
