Re: Young Rex?

There's no such thing as part rex - a rat is either rex or it isn't :)

Re: Name that colour

Belle is mink, Mulan is himi (rex - does often don't make as good rexes as bucks but she does look quite a "relaxed" rex in terms of wave/curl) and I would say Luna is much too pale for British Blue - does she have black or ruby eyes?

Re: Can I ask for rat breeders suggestions in the south west

There's a show in Cardiff in November - that might open up your options a bit if you're able to travel to it.

Registered breeders' ethics will vary as much as non-registered breeders, so it depends on your own ethics and what your idea of a good breeder is.

Re: Breeding roan and topaz

I'd have a good look at what you think makes them an ideal pairing, and what you can expect from the pairing in terms of health, temperament etc. Varieties of the kittens would depend entirely on what the parents carried if anything, so I'd suggest asking your breeder what genes are lurking in their...

Re: Help needed in identification

You can get hooded and roan/striped roan in the same litter, as well as mink and black, so don't see why they couldn't be siblings.

Re: Baby rats having baby rats from their brother?

:(
What's done is done, now you need to focus on Serenity if she is pregnant. You could use galastop to end the pregnancy still but it's up to you to decide.
Has she been split from the possible boy yet?
Do you have any way of getting pictures up on here so we can sex them for you?

Re: Baby rats having baby rats from their brother?

How bad were the bites? If Serenity is pregnant it could be that her sister picked up on hormonal changes, change in scent etc. Rats will squabble generally, we tend to say no blood, no foul. What part of the country are you in? Perhaps someone could lend you a spare cage to split the potential mum ...

Re: What kind of coat does my rat have?

Does she have straight whiskers?
Could be a combination of fur types tbh, or could just be her, not necessarily a separate gene responsible.

Re: What colour is this hoodie?

Mink does vary a lot but I think I see ticking and he's definitely not cinnamon. My guess would be BBA or RBA.

Re: Stuck with one rat

Me and Kimi are survivors and we're not going to quit on each other. Rehoming her wouldn't be quitting on her, it would actually be the opposite - doing the responsible thing and giving her a better life. It's a horrible, unfair situation to be in (and if someone bought me a lone rat as a present I...
