Orchid's Litter Has Arrived!

Orchid delivered her litter of 13 little ones in the early morning hours of March 31, 2009. The delivery went very smoothly, and Orchid is doing a wonderful job of being a first-time mother. There are 7 boys and 6 girls, all with Black eyes. This litter will most likely all be Black with the slight possibility for a few Burmese. To visit the litter page, please follow this link:

What I find especially interesting is that Orchid's mother, Lotus, also delivered a litter of 13 with the same gender count - 7 boys and 6 girls. If you would like to see Lotus' litter, please follow this link: http://www.serendipityrats.com/BjornxLotus.html

In other news, Rogues babies are now 3 weeks old and doing great! These guys and girls are so much fun, and there is a really nice variety in this litter. Reserves for this litter have started - those on the Wait List are currently being contacted in order to reserve their little ones. ;)

Rogue's Litter

Rogue delivered her litter of 14 on March 11th, 2009. Rogue's litter got off to a rough start, but seems to have stabilized. The delivery was difficult, and quite a few of the babies had moderate bruising. The four that had the most significant bruising did not make it, leaving us with ten little ones in the litter - 5 girls and 5 boys. The remaining babies are doing very well, and Rogue has been keeping them warm and well fed. I am fairly sure at this point that all 10 will make it. :)

There are some surprises in this litter, marking-wise. Looks like we have quite a few babies that are Barebacks, one Capped and quite a few with headspots. I finally got up the Baby Development page for this litter, and posted pictures of the boys and girls. If you would like to see these pictures, please follow this link: http://www.serendipityrats.com/RiverxRogue.html

Luna's litter has now gone home to their new families, with three little ones staying at SERR. I will be working on their updated individual pictures and pages over the next few days.

New Addition and a Visitor

We have a new additon to the family - PH Moxie SERR! She is a tiny Wheaten Burmese Dwarf who definitely lives up to her name. She is very spunky and playful. Thank you to Meghan of Paper Heart Rats for this wonderful girl!

We currently have a visitor from Paper Heart Rats - PH Fiona. She is visiting for a co-breeding with Cama Touch Too Much SERR. The pair were placed together on March 2nd, and if this attempt was successful, we should expect a litter on or around March 23rd. More information on this pairing can be found on the Planned Breedings page: http://www.serendipityrats.com/PlannedBreedings.html
