    Some pics from today.
    My tailless male. He's not a true tailless. I just keep the ones that lose tails at babies. Because I breed feeders I have a lot of colonies. So a 1.3 set up, you have pinkies that get cuts and stuff.
    And my Hampshire pig mice hahaha
    I have isolated this gene and can produce this stipe in black and white, grey an white and brown and white.

    Overlook the mess. All my feeder rats are kept in the basement. Having that many rats even changing every two days you still had that pet store smell in the house.... So now they are in the basement and i don't have the problem.

    I keep all of mine in a back room, as much as I love them I don't love the smell! And no amount of cleaning can totally abolish it.
    Those are some big mice!

    Lilith had her babies last night. 13 - I had hoped for much less, but what can you do..

    AWW! the babies are darling! congratz!
    our petshop used to get siamese points in all the time, now that i want one they aint getting any in :/

    when me and my sister were little (i was 5 she was 9) we were outside playing near our neighbors old barn and a baby rat, obviously wild came out and just started climbing all over us and let us hold it and pet it, never bit us or tried too, we petted it and held it and played with it for several hours before i went back to where it came from- the barn it was quite capible, wasnt too young could fend for itself but wasnt an adult either just a bit larger then the average mouse.

    and then a few years ago we had a young female mouse get caught in a trap, its foot was twisted round, i wanted to try to keep her as she was incredibly freindly would climb right into my hand and had NO fear of me and she too was obviously wild, but somehow she escaped the critter keeper i had her in till i could get ehr a permanat cage and i never seen her again.

    OH! Those wild baby 'rat' looks like a mouse. I don't want mice, so I'm not getting him.

    When I was little like that, we had a severe outside rat problem, and I remember a wild albino coming up to me. I was so scared of her! lol

    One of the light ones isn't going to make it, not sure what happened..

    The rest are seemingly fine, and fat. And we do have a hooded one. It's pretty obvious now.

    Yep most likely going to be pink eyed like his momma.

    There are 7 boys and 6 girls. The hooded is a boy.

    Good deal Ali. I almost picked up a 3-level for $10 while I was at the SPCA Friday, but we ended up being locked out of the car and had to pay Pop-a-Lock instead.

    SOOOO, i went with my bf to the pet store to get some guppies, didnt have any i liked so i just grabbed the last female (i have an 80 gallon tank to fill!)
    but of coarse, while i was there i HAD to look at everything (including the rats)
    and i seen thee most adorible lil dumbo rex imaginible! they told me they were avalible (though im thinking she was barely 4 weeks old)
    it was a female (damn!) but i couldnt resist so i was going to take one of the babies, when the stock boy told me about a young female they had, she was a double rex black and white hoody, not much older then the one i had and would be going into the snake tank for the THIRD TIME! they had put her into the snake tank once because she was the last rat left from a litter, she sat so still they figured the snake never noticed her, she was in the tank for 2 days before they removed her and put her into another snake tank only to again have her not get eaten after 3 days. so they tossed her into a cage with other feeders she ended up not being bought and again being the last rat, they were going to put her into the snake tank a 3rd time so i took her, shes very sweet and handlible not at all nervous of me.

    WELL, this is what i get for rescueing her, im 100 percent POSATIVE shes pregnant. ive seperated the little female and put this lil girl into her own "baby safe" cage, ive also got her on an all natural.raw diet nuts, fruits, veggies, and a bit of raw meat/bone.

    the last 2 days shes been a lil more skiddish, shes been obsessivly cleaning her tummy and has created a nest so i suspect shes going to have them relativly soon.

    well here are some pics of both of them

    and the pregnant baby scheska
