details of our future breeding plans

If you are interested in reserving any kittens from these planned litters, please email Mary at cyber_ratty@yahoo.co.uk
Note that kittens will be ready for homing roughly 11 or 12 weeks after the mating has taken place.

The following outline plans are tentative, and may change depending on the outcome of previous litters, and on the development, availability, and cooperation of the rats involved!

2019
matings in September:
(note that due to some failed mating attempts over the past couple of months, my other does have been queueing up and time is now running out for those who are coming up to a year old, so I've had to mate more at the same time than I would normally choose to)

2019-DAW: a litter for the platinum line. Zephyr Cosmic Dawn (quicksilver) will be mated with Zephyr Al Capone (black).
Expecting black, american mink, british blue, and quicksilver.
progress: 24/09/19 mated, litter due 17/10/19
09/10/19 - Dawn has gained a good amount of weight, so things are looking promising
17/10/19 - Dawn has been bleeding, but there were no babies as of late afternoon so this litter may not materialise, although thankfully Dawn seems to be coping reasonably well

2019-LUC: a litter to work towards american cinnamon essex. Zephyr Lucille (pale american cinnamon) will be mated with Ellfin Robert (agouti essex).
Expecting black and agouti, some essex.
progress: 25/09/19 after a failed pregnancy with a Gemstone buck, Lucille has now been mated with Robert, litter due 18/10/19
09/10/19 - Lucille has gained a good amount of weight, so things are looking promising
17/10/19 - Lucille has delivered 16 babies a day early, I will set their litter page up asap

Nimbus-havana: Nimbus Rats will be having a litter for my havana line.
Expecting chocolate american mink, chocolate american cinnamon, havana, and havana agouti.
progress: 25/09/19 mated, litter due 18/10/19
09/10/19 - Nova has gained weight well, so I'm hopeful for this litter

2019-LOR: a litter for the platinum line. After several uneventful meetings with Ace and ET, Zephyr Oh Lori (american mink) will be mated with Zephyr Space Cowboy (american mink).
Expecting american mink and quicksilver, possibly some platinum.
