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

Anyone going to join me in my post? i wanted to pick more than one but i guess you can't. No problem!
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 took a mini Video of the little ones, i hope the link works.

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!
Nice and healthy, I hear all of them chatting with mom and all are suckling nicely! very strong bunch... I should get an updated pic.... we'll see. You can see markings a whole lot better!!
I've quite possibly found homes for 2 of my little boys, i'm getting everyones pedigrees put together. I'm also planing a vet trip for them soon to assure thier healthyness.
Night my mother has been a Sert. breeder for well over 16 years now. She is teaching me as i learn from her. My mother has/had prevous homes set up for the little ones that i can't adopt out. She gave me the job of finding homes for my own kittens instead of doing the work for me. I've been looking for homes for them WELL before i even Breed Nazarath & Topaz. I failed to tell everyone this because i figured that since i've named many times that my mother is a breeder that this question wouldn't come up. Me and my mother have some beautiful lines and genetics coming from these kittens so... I'll keep breeding thank You :)
Yes she is a Certified breeder, She is REg. to N.F.R.S , S.A.C.B, and R.R.A
Her Rattery name also happens to be the name of our stableing property "uMgazi Ranch& Farm"
Thank you Reachthestars :) the dom. lines we have coming from Naz are: Blue and capped. Topaz has Self and black. I'll have to get their papers from mom so i can get their lines, i'm about 90% sure these are their colors. If i remember correctly theres no Dumbos or Rex's present in there genes. (i double check for everyone).
>.< ok heres the problem, my mom left monday to a huge rat expo in the bay area at the Cow Placa and wont be back till sunday, ALL of our bloodlines, genetic info, etc` etc are in her locket cabinets >.< so if u bear with me till sunday i'll post everything then.
while we wait i took a short vedio of how active the little ones are becoming hehe.

oh yea they are!!!! they r so cute! i've taken a fancy to this cute male mismatched Hooded :).
No twitch i live in Cali :)... I am planning on opening a rescue since there are no rat rescues in my area. However i don't have the room at this time. I have built a new track room for all my horse tack and i wish to turn my old one into a "rat room". It has everything i would need, kool in summer and warm in winter. I have an extra cage but i'm working to building more. I'm also going to look for people who might donate cages and money to my cause. I've been talking to my vet and she is also helping me plan and helping me set up a "program" where i can bring in rescued rats and they can get a free check up. I want to do more planing and more reading up before i just open up and start takeing rats in though, but i have this idea and i'm thinking of running it by my mother as well.

Oh! mom came home and i was talking to her about posting the peds. however she didn't like the idea, i know where her key is (now that she's home) but without her permission it wouldn't feel right posting the info. :( sorry...

AND... I've found a home for the little boy, it's offical and his mommy will be taking him on the 22nd 23rd ish. Best of all he'll be right down the street so i can always go check on him, and if any problems arise i will be able to assist his new mom :).

I'm not sure to tell you the truth. I asked mom what the harm could be and she said i shouldn't have to prove anything to some skeptical online people i talk to. I droped the subject since well... you don't know my mom lol. It's ok if you don't believe me thats not my problem. I'm sorry it sounds fishy and i see why it does. I've been reading up on my hw for opening a rescue and never really said anything before because it was something in the fare fare futur. After talking with my mom (to get legal assistance) she motiveated to pursue my goal now :). I've got a couple more people and older adults helping me along and making sure i don't forget anything :). It's al going well, i have no rats yet (other than my little ones) and don't plan on offering to accept any until I have more cages, food, and supplies. I promise everyone i've done my homework on this, sure i don't know everything but thats why i have a few older adults helping me along so i don't forget something important or just something simple :).
Also yes she knows about proper quarentine, she has one other rat she rescued from a bad bad home. She's been learning stuff from me and mom. She's my bestfriend and has been with me and helped me with my personal rats for a long time. Also living right down the street i'll be able to visit the little one at any time.
Thank you to the rest of you for all your support :).

eeekkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D babies eyes are open now!!! omg they are just the cutest little things in the world. Crawling around and everything!!! oh i'm so excited :D. I've noticed we have about 4 berkshires, capped, and some mismatched hooded. theres a few more but it's almost those close markings. Where it could be a berk. or a blaze deal? I'll post pics for everyone to have fun with soon :).
OK, no they ARE NOT petstore rats?? u might have gotten confused or something? in "I own 3 rats" i think it's titled i talk about how Naz was a runt and Topaz came from one of moms fellow breeders. Takota is a pet store rat though, i have no plans on breeding her. If i don't find them homes thats fine with me. We have MORE than enough room for all the little ones. If you read one of my other posts this was a semi accident littler. I wanted to breed Naz and Topaz but ended up spliting them up, i had no idea she was preg becuase they we're together a week and i always saw them just playing (maybe they did the deed while i was asleep). I knew it was possible she was preg. but she didn't show any signs so i assumed she wasn't and there for didn't look into homes too much. Need i remind you my mom is a breeder and so it's not like we don't have enough food, water, and homes for everyone to live in when they get older.

Now i can understand seeing something fishy but i don't think your being very fare in hunting down every post i make to try and find something wrong with me or an idea i have. Please stop wasting your time because for the millionth time i know what i am doing and i've been around rats my whole life.

i didn't change anything? oh my gosh i've got nothing to prove to you. I know the truth and if u believe me awesome if not it's really not my problem. I'm done talking with you, It's possible someone else posted that?? or did u just make up this story to try and make me look bad?? oir either way i'm done on this topic with you.
Seriously i'm done talking about this, edited it by adding my comment about them not being petstore rats. Can you just leave me alone now?? and these "poor babies" have an excellent home with me should they not be all adopted out. I've got them out at this moment playing with them :) now please i not going to reply to you anymore. Nothing to prove on my end :).
