The Tasty Taters Litter

 Born February 7th 2011

 

SITH Yukon Gold Baby SITH Desiree SITH Desiree
 

On February 5th 2011 SITH Desiree, an agouti self dumbo, gave birth to 14 babies sired by SITH Yukon Gold, an agouti self rex dumbo (Best of Variety - Ratstravaganza 2011).  All the babies are dumbo and may carry roan.  Except for the 2 roan babies, most the babies are solid (selfs) with considerable, to no noticeable white toes.  There are also a few with very nice English Irish markings.  Colors appear to be agouti or Russian blue agouti, with possibly one Russian blue, and an adorable black rex.  There look to be two shades of Russian blue agouti, one fairly light and looking closer to Russian blue, and one much darker, looking closer to agouti, with dark blue where the red highlights would normally be.  There are 8 standard coats and 6 curly rex coats.  The Russian blue in this litter is from the same wonderful line mentioned in Demetri and Leah's litter.  The agouti rex (roan) line that we crossed it into, is also one we have been working on since we first started breeding.  It is as well known for outstanding temperament, as it is it's show winning rex coats.  All the babies in this litter have now been reserved.  If you are interested in future babies of this type please email me.

Our show winning rex coat, curls tightly all over the rat's body, including their head, belly and whiskers. 
Unlike some curly coat genes, it neither loses it's curl, nor thins out leaving bald patches as the rat ages. 

 

 

 
What's in a name?

In a continuation of the varieties of potato theme from their parent's litter, all the babies have been named after recipe's made with potatoes.
