I breed several litters of fancy rats each year from my own established line which has a good history. I chose to identify them by using the prefix of 'Zephyr' in their names, and Zephyr became an official stud name in January 2012. I'm located in the south of Cambridgeshire, and am a member of the National Fancy Rat Society and the North of England Rat Society.
My prime objective is to improve my rats with each subsequent generation, and to breed healthy well tempered pets (some may also be suitable for showing). Any kittens that I don't keep myself will be available to new homes, subject to vetting by me or by an approved third party. Please contact me for an initial questionnaire if you wish to join my waiting list.
I breed for american mink and american cinnamon and other varieties which are based on the american mink gene: platinum and platinum agouti, quicksilver, havana and havana agouti. I will have other varieties too: black, agouti, pale british blue, british blue agouti, and chocolate. I am also developing some relatively new varieties: the silvermane coat, and dominant chocolate. I don't breed any rexes or marked rats, although I am hoping to introduce essex markings in occasional litters in the near future.
If you are interested in reserving any of my rats, or wish to make contact for any other reason, then please email me (Mary) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Follow me on twitter for the latest developments (but don't expect a daily diary!)
I also have a facebook page for Zephyr Rat Stud, as well as a private group for those who have owned Zephyrs (please contact me if you would like to join the group)
If you would like to consider offering a home to rescued rats (perhaps to introduce your Zephyr kittens to later on),
the nearest shelter to us is Wood Green in Godmanchester - click for details of their current rescue rats.
Alternatively, there is Rat Rescue Network UK on facebook, or a rehoming section on the Fancy Rats Forum which includes rats nationwide.
