    siamese surprise!!! (pic)

    So I've had my rats established and breeding for quite some time. As of right now, I only have been using one male. (1.4)

    They always threw lots of selfs or irish w/ just a few hoodeds. Blues, blacks and a few shades of beige. So I assumed I'd seen all the possibilities that they could produce..

    All of a sudden, Siamese ratties popped up! And no new breeders have been added. Looks like some were blue point too but um.. they aren't around anymore.

    I got more siamese than the regular colors/patterns thats normally produced! it was just like BAM here we are!!

    It's cool seeing hidden genes show up.. Now if some hidden genes popped up w/ my balls, that would be awesomely awesome!!! hehehe

    Meet Eggroll, our siamese dumbo boy that we are holding back as a pet and future breeder. he didn't wanna sit still and wanted off the bed lol I chose to keep him as he was very friendly and I loved his markings the best.

    Siamese are my favorite. I had a female for the longest time but I never got any Siamese babies. Now I have a male and hopefully some of her (died a couple years ago) genes are still around go give me some Siamese babies.

    Eggroll is adorable!

    Re: siamese surprise!!! (pic)

    Im sure its in there somewhere and with time it will pop up! I've never had a siamese b4 but they are freakin cute!!! I can see why they are your fave!

    its just so strange... all the past litters and none and then BAM 3 of the 4 females produced them all within weeks of each other! and like I said, theres been no new breeders added. Just goes to show ya, not to give up on possible het balls so easily!

    tho I am keeping 1.2 from these litters. a grey female we've named Dumpling, a siamese female named Springroll and of course Eggroll. the females are still really young, so it will be a while b4 they will be old enough to breed. I get so attached to them, its so hard at times when it comes to feeding day..

    Re: siamese surprise!!! (pic)

    Ooo, I was so happy when I got my first real siamese. I had been getting himalayans for a while from a couple of girls, but then I got my first wee dark little siamese! It's amazing the color change they go through as they age. They start out so dark and turn a nice cream color with those dark dark points. Siamese are my favs!!

    Re: siamese surprise!!! (pic)

    Yeah, I've got one siamese right now. She just had a litter of 18! It's funny because I bred her to my fawn male and we got a whole litter of black selfs and black hooded babies . She's a very protective mother and I've taken a couple bites from her but once her babies are weaned she goes right back to being one of my sweetest rats. I'm hoping someday we can get a couple of siamese babies from her

    so would you agree he is a siamese? i get so confused between the Siamese and Himalayans. he's obviously not a perfect one as I dont think he has color on his feet, maybe its just not showing up yet because he's upstairs where its way warmer? but..he's super sweet

    I would say so, he doesn't have the faded nose I see when I look at my himalayan.

    Himalayan (They are creamy colored when pups, and gradually get a bit darker)




    And a couple of my Siamese girls. One is a russian blue point siamese, and the other two are seal point siamese. This was during early spring, so they have lost a lot of color, but will most likely put it back on during the winter.

    Thanks! I love the siamese pattern, it's definitely one of my favs.

    The blue girl is only a shadow of what her brother looks like. His points are BLUE!

    Oh, btw, they did really well with pictures. Just use a small surface area, and take a lot of pictures!!! Oh and a drop of vanilla for them to smell.
