just rambling about the happenings with the rodents - Fun Family Rodentry
 
Ok so about the rats first. I now have my foster girl from Sacred Circle Rattery(larry and Georgette) and she is so beautiful. I believe she is prego, its just hard to tell yet. I think she is not that far along. Also, I just paired my merle buck(Daygo) with my mink dumbo doe(Ellie). I am expecting mink and pearl with a possibility of other colors and a high possiblity of merle =] so I will kep everyone updated. =]

About the mice... I have some nice things happening with my mice! I have a healthy strain of angora mice going. The colors I have in angora are BLUE(my fav), GOLD(another fav), RY, Dove(AFRMA standard dove), agouti, and black in self and broken markings. I intend on adding angora to all my colors and markings of mice. As well as the coat type, I found a doe that has verynice type that a friend of mine is using to breed. I hope to get one of her babies to try and start improving the type of my mice. I now have some show quality markings, colors and coat types. I just need to add better show type since my mice are very pet typed. PS: If anyone knows of any show mouse breeders that have a few with nice type, send them my way!
      I also have a few satin breeders going although most of my satin are now going to be satin angora. I would still like to kee some regular satin mice going since I believe the coat is beautiful. I intend to put the satin in most colors and markings I have.
      I am getting a good amount of variegated mice and I intend to rehome all those that are not perfect show markings since I am popping up with many show marked variegated. My favorite so far is the agouti variegated. They are so pretty!
      Another line of mice that seems to be going well is my merle and roan. Which in this case, seem to be related genetically which I did not believe was possible. But I think I had a roan throw a merle. Anyways, I am getting some black roan for sure, possibly a merle doe in there. I think an agoouti doe is looking like she is roaning out as well.
      My tan and fox mice are coming along as well which I am happy to announce. I was only tan though so we will see what we get. I have a few black babies that seem to have a distinct line between their lack and their complete light colored belly. We will see how they turn out.

Anyways, That was my spiel about the rodents. =] Hope you enjoyed =]
