    They are all sooo cute! I love the nekkids ..and especially since I just lost my nekkid boy this week [​IMG] I miss you, Aleris!


    What kind of cage is the girls' first condo? I don't think I've seen that one.

    Girls Condo #1 is an old bird cage. it was really 3 cages,but I had hubby cut out some aprts to make it one big cage.
    I got most of my cages for real cheap(long time ago) or they were given to me, so I have no clue how ,uch my setup really cost.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Lol, arent little old ladies the best rats? They either put the youngsters in their place or become another climbing post XD

    gorgeous babies! I cant' wait to breed them again! I had a pretty popular rattery (for my state) when i had it, had pepole coming from NY, and Ohio just for my ratties, they spent more in gas than they ddi for the ratties [​IMG] It was really fun, and my goal was health, longevity of life, then color and type. I was trying to get a good line going to get a pedigree going and possibly show them. I miss my ratties!!! [​IMG]

    Heres my two favorites (been RIP now for a few months to a year and a half now):

    Lucky

    Thanks [​IMG]

    My Rattery is one of the popular ones for Missouri(mainly becouse I'm the only active breeder that actually gives a darn about the rats)

    I've had people come from pretty far away to get some.

    Lucky was a very handsome boy!
