I have 8 rats at the moment, this is one i bred last year.

There have been loads of debates on other forums as to the type of Blue. Genetically he is a russian blue, but it has been settled on a very dilute line i have been breeding. The blues i breed don't seem to get their russian colouring until about 8 mths old and even then its very faint, you can see it appearing on his rump and flanks. I have another litter planned this year and he'll be daddy. I breed for pets only, not enough time to do rat shows as well.

yeah i got sick of trying to work out what sort of blue they are.

the russian blue influence is seen with the brownish tinges on the rump and flanks of this one, other than that the blue looks like a British blue, i love them anyway and they are not showers so who cares; i'm on fifth generation this time.
