|pogovina||09:36 pm - New babies!!|
Today the babies are 1 day old. You can already tell which ones are going to be dark like Annika, which ones will be hooded like Donovan, which ones will be capped and which ones will be light or albino. We appear to have 6 boys and 6 girls! I discovered last night that we have 2 with pink eyes, not 1,as I previously thought. They are the light pink babies at the top middle of the picture.
I'll be posting daily pictures on my journal to show their growth and development. 1 albino (of either sex doesnt matter) is already claimed and I will be getting 1 of the dark eyed babies as well, but there will be 10 more to find homes for in about 5.5 weeks! Mom is a dark chocolate irish marked and Dad is a grey and white capped with "hooded" stripe down the back. Pictures available of parents. Both come from (seperate)local breeders (the breeders sell to my local pet shops and that's how I aquired them- I've contacted the breeders for breeding history and both are great breeders)and have good lineage, sweet demeanor and are very gentle and tame- they put up with my 6 year old ADD son with ease!
Know someone in the Houston area? I'll travel a short distance to deliver. If you're interested, comment here or email me at email@example.com

Is this community still active?
My husband and I want to acquire a pair or trio of rats--but not for a while. Probably nine or ten months at least, and maybe up to a year or more. I'd love to be able to make use of this community as we learn and prepare for little rat friends!

Hey! You have stumbled on this little (experimental) corner of the interenet...I created this community because I thought that a city as big as houston had to have more people who were interested in rats than just me. So...hopefully some people will show up...heh...
Oh yeah...and join http://rat.meetup.com/ :)
