Hey guys! I'm desperately looking for some Fancy Rat & Fancy Mouse breeders in Texas! I'd prefer they either be near Dallas/Fort Worth or in East Texas, but I'm willing to travel, just not too far! I've been looking high & low & I'm really starting to get discouraged! I could ship rats, but the better breeders want you to be an established rodentry (breeding for 1 year) before they will ship to you (how the heck am I supposed to do that if they won't sell me any rats to start breeding???) & many don't like to sell their critters to breeders anyway! This seems pretty rediculious to me...we all have to sign the same contract so what's the difference!!!??? I would think that these people would be more willing to help out a newby! Anyway, if anyone out there can give me current contact info for a Fancy Rat or Fancy Mouse breeder near me, please let me know!!! Thanks so much!
