I am trying to tell if one of my boys is a berkshire or a variberk. He has a solid color back and a white belly but he has white that come up his side like a veriberk but its only on one side the other looks like a berkshire. So what is he? I can get pictures if it helps

If you adopted the rat from somewhere that isnt breeding show standard rats it is a little bit complicated directly labelling their colours or patterns! If he has a veriegated look on any part he would be called a verieberk!

With mismarked its very much about which standard he's closest too, I would say if the colour / white isn't broken up at all he's closest to a Berkshire, if its broken up around the edges with patches of white / black (variegation) then I'd call it variberk. A lot of people prefer the lable of variberk as it sounds more exotic so tend to be a bit free with it lol.
