We'll for the longest while. I was under the impression that Duncan was a Black Broken Pattern Irish. Because of the information given on AFRMA-Fancy Rats Standards with Pictures. But I was told he was a Broken Pattern Berkshire. But according to the AFRMA the Berkshire has a Full white stomach/ feet/ and tail. And that is not what Duncan has. And the Irish has White feet, White tail tip, and a white spot on the stomach. Sure Duncan's spot was large, so I just thought it was a broken pattern on him. But now, today I took a pic. And am thinking it is a borken Berk marking. I just wanted more opinions.

PICS INCLUDED

When I got him...




A month later, his back fur.


And now today, with his underbelly. He is fully exposed. I feel bad for him.

the tummy markings don't go all the way to his sides so he's not a bershire. but he is considered a Mismarked berkshire. i'm not sure if the black spot would make him a down under or irish varation as well though. but in any case he is one handsome boy.

He looks like a silvered black mismarked berk to me.

P.S. - that seed mix food is absolutely TERRIBLE for rats (and pretty much all other animals). You seriously need to switch foods, and ASAP.

Black berk with a belly spot. The standards twitch is thinking about are proper show standards and since almost all of us have pet quality rats...
What a cutie!!!
