I did some of the photos from this post
Go check it out and you can still request! I like doing photo projects.

Muffin is hilarious. She is this gigantic three month old. Twice the size of what she should be! She popcorns and goes apeshit on my hand.
I'm getting some rats from Rattius Maximus in Texas and Breakfast Bunch Rattery in Washington. Probably going to get some rats from Bonnie's Friendly Furries in San Louis Obispo, Cali.
I think once I get these rats my pearl\merle line will really take off. I did two breeding that might produce pearl and\or merles. I'm crossing my fingers!
Right now I'm basically working on three lines. My russian based line which comes out of Phi Betta Rattery and Ratz Realm Rattery. The other is my harley\dwarf line. I'm mixing my RRLM dwarves that came from OFR and LRR (Odd Fellows Rattery and Lil Rugrats) with the harley carrying rats also from OFR
I bred my sweet little dwarf Tatooine to her father Simon. I will get 100% dwarf in velveteen and harley (preys to the genetics god).
Then I'll breed a baby to Midnight, my friend's tripod boy that has harley in him. I hope to get dwarves and harleys in black. That'll be nice.
I'm getting a hairless dwarf from my friend in a few months. I will name him Wee Little Winkie most likely XD
Anyway, my third line will be my pearl\merle line from the rats around the country (Rattius Maximus, Breakfast Bunch, Odd Fellows, and Raffins House).
I hope to get all these lines into one line that carries all these wonderful resessives. In the mean time, I'm breeding my rats carefully (well I should anyway!) so I get the best health and temperament with good type.
After I get those rats I will just be studding instead of buying new rats. I'll probably keep less then I usually do. If I want two males from a litter I might sell one under the condition that I stud from him (owner gets a fee or a baby)
The NARMCI show back in February really made me interested in what a rat should really look like. My lilacs aren't lilacs according to AFRMA. Genetically they might be lilacs but look wise they aren't. I don't know if they are or aren't. It got me confused.
I'm started to plan about cross country shipping. I have a few people on the east coast that would like harleys and Debbi from Odd Fellows doesn't always have them available.
I might to an internation shipping if I can get some burmese, European husky (dies), essax, black eyed siamese\himi out of it.
I don't care much for the downunders. They are cute but all the ones I've met were either nasty or skittish. I got one from a breeder who shall remain nameless. He was an adult this breeder used for breeding. She gave him to me. He was not breeding material. The NASTIEST rat! One time he got loose in the rat room and when I came in, he CHASED me out of the rat room! I ended up putting him to sleep after it became worse post surgery (the chop!)

Wow I went on about rats didn't I? Didn't mean to!
I'll post photos of Veela and June's babies later.
I have a job interview with Centinela Feed and Supplies. I like this store because it's just pet products. No live animals. I believe there's benefits and the pay increses after five months of working there :]
Oh! Almost forgot. I'm naming a brother and sister rat I'm keeping Aiden and Somora :D

Current Mood: tired

It sounds like you are going to be breeding some positively yummy rats. ^_^

Was it Nichole or Candy who said that? As much as I adore Candy, you sometimes have to take what she says with a grain of salt. ^_^ I'm certain that Mulder was dove, not "dark platinum" as she put it.

Both of them said it. I do take it with a grain of salt (especially since I don't like Nichole) but I looked up what lilac should look like. They are bit too purple O_o
No biggie though. I'm sure they are lilac.
Mulder is so not platinum. I diidn't even listen to them when they said that. He's as dove as dove can be :\

I do trust Nichole's opinion because of how long she's been in the rat fancy, even if she's a bit creepy. -_-' Candy is much nicer, but occasionally she gets some whacky ideas about what a color is. I think the problem is that there's no long-standing, well-established club on this coast yet (NARMCI is fairly new) so none of us have had that much experience with the different colors. We can look at standards, but sometimes you have to see something first-hand and be trained to recognize it... ya know?
