Future Litters


Breeding plans can and do often change - nothing is set in stone! These are tentative breedings that I am hoping to do in the future, but only breedings listed on the Planned Litters page are ones that I have made final decisions on.

I take many things into account when choosing to breed two rats - first are always health and temperament. Next come size and type, and last are color and markings.

At this point in time these are the breedings I am thinking will complement each other nicely. These may change drastically though, especially the breedings planned 6+ months in the future. It all depends on how the young rats develop and look at adulthood. Not all of these litters will be bred; I will evaluate the rats as they grow and made decisions from there. Timing is approximate...breedings don't always work out as planned.

The dates below are when litters are planned to be born; they will be ready to go to their new homes about 6 weeks later.

2012 Litter Plans

PH Frexspar x PH Casablanca
Litter should be born in September 2012. Variety of colors possible. Half dumbo. This litter will bring an outcross to my self line. Frex is an outstanding rat and he will contribute bigger size to the line while maintaining its excellent type.

PH Frexspar x PH Anasazi
Litter should be born in September 2012. Variety of colors possible. Half dumbo. This litter is to bring Frex's nice size and type to my PED line. After this litter I will start to reproduce the silver fawn and champagne by linebreeding. But I want to set the right foundation first.

PH Don Juan x PH Tempest
Litter should be born in October 2012. Siamese and burmese expected, possibly in seal and russian blue point. Half may be dumbo. This will be my last litter for 2012.
