Comments

I had to take a break from breeding for the first half of the year. As a result of this break, my does were break at a slightly older age than usual, closer to one year of age. I had hoped to have two more litters total for the year, but two litters were stillborn and one breeding did not produce a litter.

I made a lot of progress in establishing a population of russian blue rats that carry mink, in order to produce doves next year. I also made a lot of progress in breeding out the agouti coloring expressed by quite a few of my rats.

This year was also very exciting, because I produced my first black-eyed himilayan. Next year, I hope to breed my first ivory rats, and to bring rex into my colorpoint line.
