Sooo excited, breeding group coming together!
I've already got Figaro, my dumbo hooded with a weird white mark on his head for a breeder. He's from a friend of mine, so I know his background, parents and grandparents though I don't have an actual pedigree, I do know this person has a strong healthy line. Then tonight we're picking up two dumbo hooded girls we've been waiting on that are fully pedigreed from one of the reputable breeders I was telling you about. Then Saturday my husband and I are going to North Carolina to pick up some dumbo smooth coats (haven't decided which color yet) and some dumbo rexes that are fully pedigreed from the AFRMA member breeder I've been talking to. What's great is that she has kept her two lines separate, so her smooth coat are in no way related to her rex, so I'm going to have healthy breeders from 4 entirely separate lines! That should really be the beginnings of a very strong healthy line!
If you think you may be interested in babies that are dumbo or dumbo rex let me know and I'll go ahead and start putting together a list. Some of these animals will be ready to breed as soon as they have had a reasonable acclimation and quarantine period and some will need to get a little more age on them, but I figured it can't hurt to have plenty of time to start a waiting list. That way I know I can get them placed.
By the way, I will be offering a 3 week health guarantee on any rat that is kept quarantined from other animals during that time, and I will be willing to drive a reasonable distance to meet people. At this time I am not planning on shipping. I don't know enough about doing it safely and it costs a lot. That may change eventually, but I am firm on it for now.
