My 2 of my female rats have developed an orange layer to their fur. The hair shaft starts white-ish, then the orange color, then their blue color. What is causing this? I gave them a bath, which they hated, but they still have the tint. Are they rusted?

The two that I see it on are a sky blue and a powder blue. My black berkshire female looks more agouti now as well, but I'm pretty sure that is rusting.

The color is in the middle of the fur shaft. So if I look at a single hair of fur, it has 3 layers of color. White - orange-y - blue

I gave everyone a bath and one girl seems to be better, but the other is just the same.

Anyone have anything?
