8 babies in IL Up for adoption PIc* avaiable now
« on: February 14, 2008, 09:32:02 PM »
Hi,
I have 8 babies total, 5 boys and 3 girls. The story behind the mom rat is i wanted to foster a mom and babies to get some experience  without having to breed even more unwanted animals in shelters. The mom came from a lady who had 50 rats, all ranges of colors, rex, dumbo and they were going to be killed, frozen or live feeders. I took in the mom and rex, i knew the mom was due and she happened to give birth the day she was suppost to be getting her. I got her that day with the babies hours old which is why i didn't touch the babies at first. I didn't want the mom to turn on the babies so i waited a few days and got the trust of the mom. After 3 to 4 days i started picking the babies up everyday. The babies are now 3 weeks old, as big as a mouse or bigger and mom is very sweet. I believe the mom is 3 to 4 months old, she is very young and is the same size of my two young females that were born dec.6. She loves to get away and play with the two sisters and i may keep the mom with the 2 females in the end. The babies are just as good, they can jump, eat on their own, drink on their own and when i call them they come out and stand up next to the glass on the tank and jump up to see me.

6 are the babies are cream and white like their mom while 2 males are brown/black mix and white. They are all social, loving and need some good homes. I can travel, their is a fee of 10 per a rat and 15 for two. I do ask that you show that you have at least one other rat if not get two. I would also like to see the  cage, what food you feed, what being you use and if you have a rat vet.

Thanks :)

I will have more pictures up soon :  :thumbsup2: :wave2:

II am planning on handling the babies as soon as their eyes are open. The mom gets very upset when i touch them so i am going to wait to see who is male and female.

The babies should be handled from birth. If you wait until they are 2 weeks old, you will have lost so much time and the babies will not be as social. Remove the mother from the babies, put her in a different cage or give her some out time. While she is busy, handle those babies. Most mothers get very upset when you try to handle one baby at a time and keep pulling individual babies out of the cage.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.  ~ Margaret Fuller

 If you do not want to adopt the babies please do not post. If you want to talk about whether or not you should handle babies start a topic of your own in the care area, not in adoptions.
Thank You

I may be interested.  Are there going to be pictures or anything forthcoming?  I'd like to at least know a little bit about them before I commit to anything.  :)  And please, start handling them as well!!!

I look forward to getting some updates about these kids.

To all those who have come before and left their paw prints on my heart - you are gone but will never be forgotten.

The babies have been handled. I got the bite marks from mom to show for it. I have checked them everyday and that is when i hold them, i don't do it for long just long enough to make sure they are okay I am taking pictures tonight. They are a week old today.

I Have Pictures NOW!! There are 3 Girls and 5 boys Very Cute :) I have been handling them  for a week now. Note: the only reason i didn't handle them from birth was because i got the mom hours after giving birth. It was not plan that way but it happened and with the traveling and not knowing me at all i didn't want her to refuse care to the babies so i waited. Though the mom sometimes nips me to protect the babies i have been handling them babies more as they got older. The babies are 2 weeks old this Saturday ( 24). Their eyes are going to open at anytime now. There seems to be 3 different coat colors,
the mom is a beautiful, delicate beige Berkshire.
Most of the babies are also  Beige Berkshire but a few seem to have a slightly darker coat maybe mink but i am not sure yet i am going to have a breeder who has more experience with coat types so that i can be sure.
2 boys- Agouti ( brown)
 I have pictures of the baby's at 2 weeks so if you want to see pictures i have some in my photo album and i can send them to you as well.
 I also have 4, 2 month old babies as well who are very social and loving.  There are 2 males and 2 females so let me know if you want more information on them as well.

thanks

 So far i have no for sure homes for any of them. So you if you want to see updated pictures let me know i have them on the computer but haven't posted them yet. They are 3 weeks old today, they are very cute and come out when i call them. One female is the leader of the group and is always with mom but shes going to be a smart rat.
