Re: Bedding -sigh-

Gosh that seems expensive to me, I'd take a trip up to visit the horse shop. I get my Bedmax from my farm/horse shop for £6. It lasts for foreveeeerrrr!! Although I do have Explorers with cat litter trays now rather than the Tower/Freddy/Jenny which ATE bedding! :oops: :lol:

Re: What color is that?

They don't look that underfed to me, just babies, I wouldn't feed them rich food for rich foods sake. A good mixed diet is much better.

Re: Breeding and birthing - what happens when things go wrong?

Hope & Wilbur were to be my first litter, they are two bother beautiful Rats from reputable breeders, I didn't even really consider things going wrong. They got on like a house on fire, no squabbles or anything when they were introduced. On Friday 12th Feb I noticed Hope spotting round her cage, I a...

Re: Tailless/Manx Rats....

I've no experience with Tailess but have heard there are a few Ratteries on the East Coast in the States that have got to a stage where they are breeding Tailess Rats with no spinal deformities/incontinence or mobility problems. All that said though, I still don't like them. Hairless too, they aren'...

Re: cost of fleece?

If you've got a local indoor market type place they' should do it too, mine is anywhere from £2-£5 depending on colour and pattern. Good shout about the remnants bin Devon, even if its small scraps you can do patchwork type quilts too.

Re: Normal weight for bucks?

LOL Gaby these Rats have you wrapped around their finger, they don't need the dog food/baby food if they really do look fat rather than big boned. You need to just leave them with their dried mix and only refill it when its empty.

Re: To cook or not to cook???

Ditto Sabby, also I wouldn't molly coddle them too much. I'd just offer them up and see what they do with them, I get the frozen cooked ones and mine love them, specially on a hot day... you cannot beat a frozen chick pea, or so I'm told by my boys & girls! :lol:
