Re: Possible russian Silver

what colour eyes does this baby have? I cannot see its eyes on the pics and I wouldn't even attempt to guess at something I didn't know its eye colour.

Its also very deceptive at this age as to how it will turn out, it is better to ask again at around 6 - 7 weeks of age

Re: Why do breeders inbreed?

I will seek kittens back from those I have given rats to from that line, hopefully aquiring rats that do not carry russian or dumbo and then see what I can produce from there as most will no doubt have been crossed with other lines. I only have does here that carry topaz and do not also carry russia...

Re: Why do breeders inbreed?

I'm not sure that I deliberately "selected" out the clotting problems in my old Topaz line I only kow that for many generations I didn't breed with Topaz does, only Topaz bucks and Agouti carrier does. When faced with only having does in a litter that were Topaz I had to chose whether to try breedin...

Re: Leaving the mother with girl babies.

in the first instance I split mine mainly so that we do not get any chances of having little boys mating with little girls ;) mostly I leave the does with their mum for an extra week because mostly they are a little smaller than the boys and I feel need nurturing a bit longer. I also use this as an ...
