You took the words out of my mouth, Lisa. I was going to say all domestic rats are 'fancy' rats. The hardiest being the ones with furs/tails becuase they're less likely to have deformities. HOWEVER if down the road you are going to plan to breed, be very caeful when breeding blue rats. Because, aparently, the females can get internal bleeding when pregnant if they're blue. Blue is recessive though, so the only way to get a blue rat - or the easiest way is if one of the parents is blue. If one of the parents has a blue parent but isn't blue then that means the parent is heterozygous for blue, and can either throw a blue or not.
