  1. Hi Very Nice Blog!
    I found your blog because I was thinking about breeding rats again.

    I use to breed rats for pet stores and snake owners.

    When I had rats there was no Internet back then. I still made a good income. Now the sky is the limit with the Internet.

    Anyhow,I was wondering since I have been out of the rat business so long if you could tell me which rats are in demand and about how much I could get them for?

    Right now I am doing some research to brush-up on the breeding cycle and I want to provide my rats with the best care to keep them happy and disease free.

    I would appreciate any advice you could give me.
    Thank You

  2. Everything you had written is interesting and good to learn but I never found the Hairless Fancy Rats fancy. They are something different for me, something that I won't be preferring while having my pet. I had been taking help from the Pet Grooming Tips to know about the pets in detail.
