Valiance Blossom x Eximius Captain Kirk

Litter M

Blossom x Kirk

When: Mated 17th June 2014
Why: I originally planned this mating to be with Dave. Unfortunately, there have been two incidents of female tumours in two young does in the line Dave is from so I have chosen not to inbreed on him. It might all be coincidence but as the problems seem to be doe related I can't know if Dave's affected in any way. Kirk is related to Bunyip, so this shouldn't be too much of an outcross. I will keep rats from this mating and wait until they are much older before breeding them and I will inbreed hard going forwards which will mean that I should be able to tell if there are any genetic problems pretty quickly.
What: Expecting small, typey, muscular rats with a relaxed temperament in agouti, black, chocolate and chocolate agouti. Some will be mismarked essex. Possibility of mink/cinnamon, british blue/british blue agouti and champagne/silver fawn.
