Blue babies

August 15, 2010

I have been looking forward to blue babies for so long, as British Blue is the variety is I originally decided I wanted to breed. However, at one point I did wonder if I would ever get any!

Evie, the one doe I have for my blue line took three tries to get pregnant, with two different bucks! But she has finally had a litter. It’s a small one, only 5 babies, 4 boys and 1 girl I think. I was after a couple of blue girls from her litter, but the one girl she has had is a either blue or blue agouti so she has been a clever mum in that respect!

Here are some piccies, taken today at a week old:

Bella’s babies now all have homes lined up and have been split from their Mum today. They are turning into really nice rats and I will get some new pics of them to put on here soon.
