Varieties we breed.
All responsible small breeders only concentrate on one or two varieties therefore if you are looking for a specific variety you may need to look at other breeders.
Pink eyed marten kittens. Dumbo (left) and standard/top eared (right)
My Primary variety is Marten, This means a dark steel grey rat with paler bellies and the classic paler shading around the eyes and muzzle.
I breed Martens in Black and Pink eyes and both top and dumbo ears.
Please see photos for some examples of different exammples.
I have also started breeding Silver agouti which is the agouti form of marten. As a result i may occasionally have black and agouti rats available occasionally.
Black eyed marten - Dumbo ears
My newest variety i have added is Ivory.
Ivory's are a warm white rat with striking black eyes.
Be aware Ivory's are not the same genetically as "black eyed whites" which are prone to a number of health issues and Ivory's do not suffer the same consequences.
