Hey, i just joined here too and am also a breeder. Right now i breed standard hooded, but i am looking to get a male himalayan for my female. I want to try and darken the points on the himalayans.
What type of breeding do you find works best? Im thinking about trying inbreeding with my himalayan once i get a male. I outcross mostly right now with my hoodeds but am hopeing to develop a line soon.

hi

i`am also breeding the hooded for the colour varyations as these are more popluar round my area but i also have a breeding pair of dumbo s too( well comine on thurs can`t wait)

got lots of nice markings and colours on my hooded.

and most of mine are hand tame before they leave.
which when i sold a few to the local pet shop they were so impressed they want a regular stock of them.
i still go there every day and handle them.

Thats awsome. I work at a pet store, but about 90% of the rats there are bought for food, so i wont be bringing any of my rats there, lol.
My himmie is a dumbo. It would be awsome if i could breed a double rex himalayan dumbo. I love rexes!!

hi,



yeah i would love them.

so where u from ?

iam up north (england)


nice to meet some one as keen as me to try to stop breed ing food snake (i shouldn`t really comment i have snakes but they eat mice and chicks)

but i surppose it has to be done.
but i ask for payment for my rats there fore i know they go to good home.
other wise i would do it for free.
i breed for the pleasure and colour vairysions not for the money (god if i did that i would be bank rupt lol)

lol tell me about it, i just spend around $200 yesterday on two of my rats. One has a respiratory infection and the other has dermatitis, a repiratory infection, and something else wrong with his lungs.
Speaking of meds, time to go give them out, lol.

lol mine got watermelon today too, and some wet dog food as a treat.
What do you feed your rats? Mine get suebee's diet. It takes about $15-20 to make, and lasts me about a month. I only have six rats at the moment though. Soon to be alot more in 5 more days! I cant wait until Tequila has her babies!
I get 15lbs of rabbit food, and it lasts me about a month. Then again, i only use it on my 12lb flemmie, lol.
