Rat Game results

edit</i>
One of the babies I thought was dead is actually still alive. So that means thirteen babies.
June had her babies at about 9:20am this morning. She didn't really have to work at getting them out. They plopped out very easily (she exploded?)
She had a total of fourteen babies but two didn't make it. So that means that imonsie got it right.
For the prize, you (along with everybody else) gets to see some super cute photos of my naked ladies Fuzz and Diva! I also use my lovely icon in honor of you winning :]

I have a couple of questions as I am not up on ratties... congrats btw.

How do you determine who to breed who to? With them having shorter life spans then animals I am used to, how do you determine how long to breed the males and females?

That kinda confused me until I read it a third time :P
I usually only breed females twice but if they are reallly healthy, have a history of good health, and just overall doing super well I might consider breeding a third time. Fuzz has only had one flareup (of myco). All she got was the red nose...didn't even get the sniffles (funny sounded breathing). She is about a year and a half. So, with that said, she is a good candidate for a last litter.
I decide who to breed together based on their genetics and temperament. She carries highwhite (hooded and blazed), dumbo, hairless, and american blue. I would breed her to a male that carried at least one of these traits. I am thinking of breeding her to my boy Legolas to get some nice highwhite markings (hoooded, bareback, blaze).
THat also said, if I have a rat that has the right genetics but is havnig some medical issues (more then a teeny flareup) I don't breed that rat until it's 100% better.. Then I breed that rat to a super healthy rat so the babies will be strong health wise. ALSO (lol), if the rat has the right genetics but isn't that friendly I won't breed that rat to an average rattie. If it's genetic agression I don't breed the rat at all but if it's just minor "I don't really like stranger rats" agression I will breed it to a super sweet rat with NO agression at ALL (if I breed that iffy rat at all)
Wow I rambled :P
