This is a terrible idea:

1.) you know so little about genetics that you're unable to even begin to predict what types of rabbits this mating will produce. This means you also have no idea what type of genetic deformities this will produce.
2.) You complain about the 'high price' of the certificates -- you realize it's expensive to provide vet care for two rabbits and a litter of babies, especially if there are complications?
3.) You are very unknowledgeable about rabbits. In an earlier thread you didn't even know what cecals were, which is one of the very first things we teach our adopters before we even send bunnies home with them.

It is irresponsible to breed two rabbits for fun when you know little about the species, nothing about the genetics, and don't want to invest the money neccesary to produce quality animals.

Maybe you should focus on learning about rabbits and how to care for them properly before you risk their lives trying to breed them?

When you come into a forum and ask one question (which is very basic and shows a back lack of knowledge about that species of animal) and then the very next question is about breeding and genetics (which are extremely complicated and require years of specialized study to understand) it doesn't seem like you want to learn -- it seems like you just want to make more rabbits.

To be honest, in the time it will take you to learn about how to breed, it will probably be too late to breed these rabbits. (They'll be too old to do so safely). Additionally, to breed safely, you have to select animal based on type and genetics which will complement each other.

You really need to find a local breeder who is doing so responsibly and try to mentor with them so that they can teach you about genetics, the proper way to breed, etc.
