My oldest boy Vinnie is getting up there in years, and I made the decision to breed him one last time, my last litter ever, in hope that I would get a baby that resembles him, in color, and attitude.
Well I believe I've gotten that, and I wanted to share my new litter with ya'll....and to tell you that I've never seen rat pups so chunky before..EVER. They are just past a week old, and have fat rolls. Yes, Fat Rolls. They are very healthy, and active.

9 babies all together, 7 males, 2 females. All Chubbly! This picture was taken at 3 days old, at this age they were already as long, and big as my thumb.

Awww, they are beautiful! Lil chub-chubs! I can't wait to see pictures of when they start getting fur. :)

Are you going to keep the babies or what are your plans with them?

I am keeping two of the boys, several of the others do have homes, a local teacher will be taking 3 boys for her classroom, and will be taking them home with her at the end of the year, I donated her a cage, some bedding, books about the care of rats, a food dish and water bottle, and a bit of food. She teaches a 5th grade class. And my boyfriends brother is taking the 2 girls, and the last two boys will be going to live with my friend Kimm, but that is just tenative, she wants to discuss it with her daughter.

Ratties turn so many different colors as they molt so it is hard to say! But, boy is she just the prettiest little thing! I love her white spot on top of her head, surrounded by that beautiful tan colored fur..what a cutie pie!!!:D

Those are the cutest, chubbiest babies EVER!!!!! And that last one, she is a doll! I'm not sure if she will molt out of the variegated color on her back, because my Russell has that same color pattern down his back, and he has a gray hood and a blaze. His blaze got a bit thinner once he got his adult fur, but the variegation never went away. She might stay like that---I think she's super cute!!! :heart:

Thanks! She's a sweetie, and one of the boys is quite a trouble maker...now that he's got his eyes open he won't stay where his mother tells him to!
