i got Luna and star for my birthday in march this year. decided a couple of weeks later to get 2 males


the 2 males i got. the champayne hooded is Cosmo and the Black berkshire is Storm..notice the difference in size.


thought the girls could do with some more female company so got Angel..i think shes a roan or something not too sure..obviously shes dumbo eared..the quiet of the girls..but also naughty!

then one day while i was cleaning out the "males" cage i found 2 babies! hidden in the tunnel with storm..realising storm was female..took her and the 2 babies out. the little boy who i named shadowed died at around 6 days old.. the girl who i named ebony died at 16 days old..heres one of the last pics i had of her


any way after the babies died i noticed storms belly getting big


a few days later out popped 12 babies!




18th june

18th june

also 18th june

after the male baby died(before i realised storm was pregnant again) i decided i couldnt leave cosmo on his own so i got him 2 new cage mates. the all champagne colour is Orbit and the lighter champagne hooded is Comet

there are 7 black hooded..3 hooded boys and 4 hooded girls. 3 all black boys and 2 all black girls. i'm keeping 3 hooded girls and the last all black girl Very Happy . quite an adventure..especially for poor storm Sad ..looking at the pics of when i first got her i would say she was only 5 weeks old when i got her..she was meant to be 8 weeks but was too small..and even my vet said how she was too small for 8 weeks old! stupid pet shop!! Evil or Very Mad ..unfortunately i had to rehome star Crying or Very sad ..she kept attacking all the other female rats...pulling clumps of fur off them..poor angel never left the igloo let alone wondered out of the cage. i did ask for advice on FR but no1 replied..so i found her a home..and shes settled in well and the person sends me emails and pics Very Happy ..maybe she just prefered older rats...she even got to the stage were she'd attack her own sister luna..poor luna would hardly stay in the cage with her. but i knew if i wrote that on the other forum people would certainly have something to say about it.but i feel it was the right thing to do for my rats

It could be the case - i rehomed 2 of mine to someone who had to keep my babies as a duo until her girlies were older as poppy didn't like baby rats. She even used to get annoyed with her own.
