I've kept this doe who is Lilac Himalayan.

www.showrabbits.com/rabbits.aspx?id=359712

Her genetics are as such: Color: Lilac Himalayan
Ar-Ar / Br-Br / Ch-Cr / Dr-Dr / Ed-Ej
Er-Er / Dd-Dr / Vd-Vd / Wd-Wd / Sd-Sr

What do I need to breed her to to increase chances of just Lilac and limit the Himalayan as well as other NR colors? Which gene is responsible for the Himalayan?

Ch is the himalayan gene. Cr is responsible for REW. So ChCr or ChCh will be himi, CrCr would be REW. For everything else including just lilac you need Cd--- preferrably CdCd. Breeding to another CdCd will guarantee a non himi/REW but it will carry a recessive of either Ch or Cr.

You will want to watch the EdEj as well...if you end up with EjEj it will produced a brindled rabbit.

Basically your perfect rabbit will look like this:

Ar-Ar / Br-Br / Cd-Cd / Dr-Dr / Ed-Ed
Er-Er / Dd-Dd / Vd-Vd / Wd-Wd / Sd-Sd

So Cd is dominant, I assume, therefore just one allele carrying it will put me back in good stead.
Thanks for the heads up on the Brindled. I was actually just wondering that on another rabbit.
