i'm so excited!!! i hurd some sqeaking last night and i thought it was too loud to be my mouse mamas babies. So i looked in Topaz's cage and she has 13 little pink babaies!!!! She lived with my male for about a week and then got the sniffles so i had to move them apart. I didn't know she had taken!!! i'm so happy she did and i'm so excited. I'm hoping to get some blues. Naz is a blue hooded and she's a black hooded. Naz is getting older so i breed them in hopes of getting a Naz Jr. so i can always remember him :). I know kind of silly but me and Naz are super close. I'll post pics asap, i don't want to bother her too much.

I did want to ask, sometimes when they are sucking on her teats she'll drag them out. Should i place them back in?? or will she do that? as fare as i know she's a first time mother. I've also taken her off her sniffles meds so it wont harm the babies. I've done mouse babies but not rat lol.

I took a vedio of them but youtube doesn't let me play it?, if someone knows how i can play it please let me know.

p.s. Thought a little pole on what color the babies would be, would be fun!! please join in

until the hues start showing i don't want to guess. so i'll hold off for a few days. at least until they're 3-4 days old pics are up.

have you started sexing them yet? do you know how many girls and boys there are? have you started to list them in the adoption forums of the net? the sooner you get them in the better. it can take a LONG time to find everyone homes and the more pubilcity they get the better.

They are about 2 or 3 days old i've had a little peak while mommy was running in her ball but it was honestly a little hard to say. I live in a small town but i will give it a shot since i might get lucky. I'm hoping to keep a male if theres a blue male so we'll see how that goes. I'll keep giving little peaks now and then. I'm happy that mommy isn't being bity so fare *knocks on wood*

OK i've done a re-count and there are 12, 5 boys and 7 girls. Looks like we have some selfs, capped, and possibly a dalmation.

I've found a home for one of my little ones with my bestfriend Bettyjo, It was her b-day and she has a little female who needs a cage buddie so once one of my female are ready to leave mommy she'll get to pick one and see how things go. (of course she'll have her own cage for a while before they meet one another) I'm also going to give her a breeding Cert. so she can check out who her babies granmommys were and what not!

Just a suggestion... I know I can't stop you from breeding, although you really shouldn't do it anymore honestly, but you need to find homes for your babies BEFORE you breed, just to insure that they have some place to go once they're 6 weeks old.

Actually, I'm not doing anything wrong here. I'm simply suggesting that she finds home for the babies before she breeds her rats.

You're the one who's picking on MY faults now, fallinstar, and are replying to nearly all of my replies either trying to find something wrong with what I say, or just plainly yelling at me. Stop that.

stop picking FAULTS you are getting to be so annoying!
You are, once again, jumping to conclusions.

Night is damned right when she SUGGESTS that nazareth find homes before the birth. She didn't do it negatively, did she say "you're so wrong for not finding homes for those poor kittens, you're horrible for not doing that"?? NO! She said nothing of the sort! She simply advised for future reference!
