My Specialties - Information about varieties
I am currently working with, working to produce and perfect.
One of the first few rats that I had from a breeder in 2004 was a
Seal-point Siamese, Legolas. Legolas was never bred. I had him and
his cage mate neutered because of their fighting. I really liked the
look of the Siamese back then, but it wasn't a variety I was planning
on specializing in. I went without a Siamese until 2008. In late 2008,
I brought a black-eyed Siamese pair in from CAMA in Colorado. I only
bred the male once before the breeder informed me of a
health issue (tumor) in the line. I have since been working on eliminating
the problem instead of ending the line. My efforts are producing positive
results. Unfortunately, in the outcrossing I've done, I've brought
in some unwanted berkshire markings. So now I am working on eliminating this marking
to produce correct Siamese Selfs. I am also working on improving the
points on them.
The Russian blue is one of my specialties. This color I've had right from the beginning. I typically have Russian
I typically have blue berkshires, variberks, variegated, but also have had bareback
and capped. I am working on improving the intensity of the color to a very deep blue.
In 2008, I brought in the first Downunders into the region from the same breeder,
CAMA. They are one of my favorite. I continue to work with them, and am conitnually
trying to improve their belly - downunder marking. Each generation
Then in 2009 I brought in my first Burmese. Again from CAMA! I love the look of the Burmese shades! These are one of my favorite
colors to work with, and they've been a work in progress ever since.
I had brought over a couple of Burmese Selfs, but have since lost
those to berkshires in my quest to produce a Burmese hooded downunder.
I am working on bringing back the Self now. Of the Burmese shades,
the Sable Burmese and Russian Blue Burmese are my favorites.
Markings: My specialties are the hooded, downunders, variegated,
and variberks. Although I don't breed for these occasionally I have bareback and capped.
