fuzzy ratties






Awww, look at their white fuzzy faces. I love PEWs (pink eyed whites). Their snowy fur and their pink eyes, so dainty and lovely. I got a soft spot for them :)


:3


Pink eye!

I still say that Gandalf came from one of my best litters. I had three of his brothers, sweetest guys and the last one died last year, so he lived a long time!

It's a fairly large litter. I've noticed this with breeding rats. When I bred rats, the mamas had litters of about 6-8. Pet store rats though...they have huge litters! It's not fair :P

We had a mama dog give birth at the shelter the other day and she had 9 puppies, so I guess dogs have a bunch too....:)
Well maybe it's only feasible for rats to have a medium litter and it's healthier for them to have fewer...
Like the pet store ones die young and aren't ideal pets, so maybe it's better?

I'm not sure what it is. It is better for them to have small to medium litters, I agree with that. It's not fair that pet store rats, the rescue mamas, have such large litters though ya know? Rat breeders are trying to breed healthier rats that don't have genetic agression. It's "easy" to find homes for breeder rats, the rats some people would call "designer". They aren't designer rats, they are just in different colors. THe pet store rats, they have large litters of babies that might be prone to agression and horrible health woes.
Rats born from a large litter tend to have large litters themselves.
I miss breeding rats, I will not start again though. I don't have the time or money to breed rats right now, plus I can't start breeding again if I plan on moving out :P

I had two rats (who were sisters) give birth to litters within the same week. One had 15 babies (one of which died within the first day), the other had two VERY LARGE, VERY FAT babies. Seriously... they were obese from the time they were like, a week old. But OMG they were so squishy and sweet.

The largest litter that I bred was 15. I had a litter of two babies as well and they were fat little things too! I <3 fat squeakers :)
