As i'm probably going to be picture spamming these babies i thought i'd make a new topic here to show their progress and hopefully them growing up into lovely respectable ratlets!

If you hadn't seen about Zinsa - Heres the link to what happened..
http://www.ratforum.com/showthread.php?225433-Zinsa-New-rehome-rat-I-ve-seen-this-look-before.

She had 9 live babies, all *touch wood* doing well so far, mum is very laid back and generally such a sweet heart.

Anyway, some squidge photos! - I 'think' there are 4 boys and 5 girls... but i'm no expert, and it's quite early days. (Ps, Moonkissed - i spotted that you may have the same mix! getting spooky now! lol)

Zinsa is just copying us now lol :)

They are so adorable! The little whiskers are heart melting. I love the blackness of them. Mine still look all pink because they will be white lol.
Aww bless them, I remember when I took in my last pregnant girls, they were all very light, It's strange seeing the dark colour on them this early! - like little sausages lol!

Also, i was going to ask... with this photo, Thegirls.jpg ... The two in the middle seem to have different colour pigmentation coming through, Is it due to them possibly being different colours altogether like an agouti or something? Or is it just it comes through at slightly different rates... ?

It could be that they're a different color, though technically agouti would be more prevalent than black if that was the case, but I've also never had agouti pups so I've never witnessed what the skin pigment coming in would look like. It may just be that some are developing their pigment slower than others? I got really excited with my last litter because some of them looked like they would be blue, but it just turned out that their black pigment just looked a little different (they were hairless and rex pups).

The more time that goes on the more there is becoming quite a difference in the colours of them,... i suppose time will tell!

Omg...that picture with the three little jelly bean butts! And you're right, it does look a little more pronounced than it did. Won't be too long before you'll be able to tell for sure!
