Some good news first - Serenade delivered her litter on June 19, 2009. She has a total of 15 little ones, most of which are boys. We have 11 boys and just 4 little girls. I have been handling and them regularly and they are all thriving. There are no runts, and Serenade is doing a wonderful job as a first time mother. I will be taking pictures of the little ones tomorrow, and they will be posted on the website hopefully by tomorrow night. :)
I still have two little girls available from Calypso's litter - a Seal Point Siamese Berkshire Downunder and a Black Berkshire Downunder Velveteen. I will be posting updated pictures of them on the website tomorrow as well.
There have been some changes that I would like to address here. I have made a few changes to my breeding plans, and have cancelled one upcoming breeding - Cama Vertigo x SERR Venus. At this time, no other changes to my immediate breeding plans have been made.
Also, I have had quite a few applications for Dwarf rats, which I will not have available for adopters for at least 6-8 months from now. Since I am still building my Dwarf line, many of my upcoming breedings will be Standard rats that are Dwarf carriers - and not many Dwarves. Dwarf rats have very small litters with an average of around 2-6 little ones per litter, so even when I do start DwarfxDwarf litters there will be very few available to adopters. So, at this time I am not accepting any new applications for Dwarf rats. I am still accepting applications for Standard rats, and there should be plenty available - especially males, as it seems my girls tend to have predominantly male litters. ;)
Okay, I think that covers everything for now! :)
