Fully agree that is the way for a novice to go, was wondering more how the class worked as I had never come across a class like that in the rat fancy.sarahc said:a mouse novice may be better off getting their chosen variety straight from a breeder along with that breeders advice.
we used to do this Lian, along with pairs and trio's, these classes were dropped from the rat schedule in the late 80's.Rowangate said:Do the entrants in an auction class get judged? or is it purely a way of recording stock that will be in the auction.
I can remember rat sale stock being sold at shows but never any auctions. I bet some of the mice go for a good price as auctions are very easy to get carried away with.julieszoo said:I definitly recall there being a rat auction at 2 of the Bradford champs when they were at the racecourse. So maybe only 7 or 8 years ago were the last ones.
