haha i think so to;

I had a rat that went from being a beige hooded to a siamese. Shes very pretty but if you looked at her you'd never guess that she was once a beige hoodie. So anything is possible lol.

Some rats do get darker with age. My girl Coconut was a light champagne color when I got her, so light that people called her white and could barely see the difference in color between her back and white berkshire tummy. Now she's so much darker people are surprised she's still the same rat. (I was just thinking that her name doesn't seem very fitting anymore... but now she's the color of toasted coconut :lol: )

yeah, some rats will change color. little willow (a sweetie of reachthestars) looks COMPLETELY different then she did when she was a baby. i had only seen pictures and then when i asked for updates she sent me new pictures and i thought she had gotten another rat. i forget the color exactly (i think she was a mink) but she ended up being a himi with really drastic markings.

and some dark rats will change as they age. my girl tween used to have this near flawless rich black coat, its rusted so much now that she's about a 1 1/2 that she's almost better classified as a chocolate.

then there's bribery who is only about 6-7 months old and though he's a blue he has a brown butt.

your's seem pretty young though so its probably just part of their first or second moult (i can't remember off hand what ages those happen at) but its pretty common during those times that the color or darkness of the coat will change a bit then.

they could rust. the black bits go brownish in splotches. the back of nezumi's neck did that and she was black hooded.... not as neat and going blue or entirely changing their markings though i guess...
