Back after a long hiatus
I'm back to breeding after a year off. I'm quite excited, it's been so long since there's been teeny babies in the house. I'm expecting two litters this week.

RRLM Ickle Ronnekins (Ron) xx RRLM Luna
Ron is a russian fawn and Luna is a russian platinum berkshire, both are dumbos. I'm expecting dumbos in standard coats, berkshire markings and maybe irish as well. Colors will probably be black and russian based colors.

RRLM Lee xx RRLM Impa (Imp)
Lee is a black self ticked with silver (not a silver black) and Imp is a russian point siamese. Expecting standard coats with half standard ear and half dumbo. Colors should be siamese, black, and russian blue.

Later on I'll be breeding my other boy RRLM Harry II to a female from one of these litters. That won't happen for quite some time of course, the female has to get old enough to breed!

Current Mood: hungry

OFR Rubeus Hagrid xxx SKR Sybil
I'm breeding Hagrid to Sybil right now. Hagrid is a black harley while Sybil is mink dilute (not sure of her true color). I won't get any harleys in this breeding.

I have recently adopted three rats from Odd Fellows Rattery in Tacoma Washington. A black harley male (OFR Rubeus Hagrid), a black eyed himi female (OFR Minerva), and a male burmese (OFR Neville). I will be breeding Hagrid as soon as possible to my agouti velveteen Muffin. Muffin's father carries harley so hopefully she does as well. I will be breeding Neville to Minerva once they get to be a healthy breeding age.

I'm trying to breed my manx girl, Tushy to my friend's hairless guy Slick. The females from up north have been x-rayed and can be bred. I'm hoping to get hairless and manx carriers. THen I can breed siblings back to each other in the hope of getting a hairless manx.

OFR Mariette x IA Amber
Amber's babies are 18 days old. There are still seventeen babies and Amber is still doing a great job as a mom. This litter, like I said, carries harley and might even produce one or two. All the babies are topear and carry dumbo. They also carry dwarf. They carry alot of things! I got a manx girl out of the litter who I will be keeping and x-raying. Some of the babies have a different coat then the other velveteens, they look and feel different. I think if there are harley in the litter, those are the ones.

SKR Fuzz xxxx RRLM Slick
I will have another photo post following this one. I didn't want all the photos in one post.
The other day I went to my friend's house to pick up some males for myself as well as borrowing one of her boys to use as a stud. This post is about the stud\breeding and the photos.
Slick, the male, is a very sweet fawn hairless dumbo. I am going to breed him to my own Fuzz, another fawn hairless dumbo. Most of you that know any of my rats will know of Fuzz. She is the queen of my rattery. Everytime I get a customer I bring out the Fuzz Monster, and they automatically fall in love.
This will be her very last litter. I thought very hard about breeding her. She was recently injured (you might remember my story of her getting slashed open). She's also a little older, though not too old. After much debate with myself, I decided to go for it. She's extremely healthy, healed very fast, is a wonderful lactator (I put five babies with her when she already had 10 once), and she's such a sweet girl. If anybody in the Los Angeles area is interested in a Fuzz baby, let me know asap. She will probably have a smallish litter (I'm thinking around 8) and I already have a lot of interested people.
I have had the two together since Sunday, so I hope she will go into heat fairly soon.

SKR Fuzz xx RRLM Slick
I am trying to mate these two right now. Both rats are fawn hairless dumbo. Fuzz is the queen of the rattery. She is much like my very first rat Hamlet in temperment and bravery. She is a licker, bruxer, and all around sweetheart. This will be her very last litter before she is retired to a life of extreme pampering and hammoks. Of course she has these things now, but I'm sure they will be even more enjoyable when she is retired.
Slick is owned by another rattery. He is also a fawn dumbo hairless. I have only known Slick a few hours, but so far he has proved to be a good candidate to Fuzz' retirement litter. He is sweet, healthy, and very large.
I am expecting all hairless dumbos. The litter will probably be 100% fawns but it's always possible that a few other colors might pop up. These babies should be super sweet and licky. Reservation list is open but going fast!

SKR Andrea Gail xx RRLM Obi Wan Kenobi
Andrea Gail is a dove point siamese dumbo. This will be her first litter. A.G. is a playful young girl who loves to playfully attack human hands and pin them down. Then she proceeds to lick you until you endlessly.
Obi Wan Kenobi is a beautiful russian point siamese velveteen dumbo. He is a sweet and mellow boy. He would much rather nap then play :)
I am expecting 50% smooth coat and 50% velveteen. The litter will be entirely dumbo. Colors should include seal, russian, and possibly dove point siamese. Russian blue, russian dove, and maybe russian platinum also expected. Babies should be sweet and playful.
I am trying to breed this litter right now.
Reservations open.

Current Mood: accomplished

Planned Breeding for summer 2005
All these litters will not be bred at the same time.

SKR Fuzz xxx RRLM Slick
Both rats are fawn hairless dumbos. Slick is owned by his breeder so it will be a joint rattery breeding.
Fuzz carries hairless and dumbo obviously. She also carries american blue farther down the line.
Slick carries hairless and dumbo obviously. He carries american blue and russian blue.
This pairing is not 100% Right now Fuzz is in good health but I want to wait at least until this weekend to determine if she is in breeding condition.
100% dumbo hairless. Most likely all will be fawn. Maybe some american blue

RRLM Padme xxx two possible males
At this moment I am deciding which male to breed Padme to. Padme is a really nice black self topear. She carries russian blue.
The two possible males are RRLM Leroy and BFF Lando Calrissian
Leroy, who is owned by RRLM, is a russian blue while Lando is a pearl. I will most likely go with Lando.
Leroy::: russian blue, self, black
Lando::: black, self, pearl, merle possibly

Next pairing:::

SKR Andrea Gail xxx RRLM Obi Wan Kenobi
Andrea Gail is either a PEW or a russian based siamese (russian, dove, or russian plat siamese). I will know for sure of her color this weekend. She is a dumbo. She carries seal and russian point siamese, hairless, russian blue.
Obi Wan Kenobi is a russian point siamese velveteen dumbo, and I own him. He carries russian point siamese, russian blue, hairless
100% dumbo. Maybe hairless. Russian point siamese, velveteens, russian blue, other russian based colors

My rat Opal had a litter two weeks ago. I was super excited about this litter and my excitment is valid! These babies are BIZARRE. I have no idea what color they are. Breeder welcome to help (especially beautifulwolf )
Their mom is the same color and their dad is similar but not the same. He's a silvery color. Both rats were adopted to me as pearls but I can say they definitly aren't! The mom has black eyes as do the babies. The dad has red eyes.
Help? :P
gorgous babiesCollapse )
