Whether you get a rat from us or any other place we want to make sure you have the information available to give you and your pets the best life possible!

Basic Rat Info

Blue Coloring

Did you know Blue and Russian Blue are actually two different distinct mutations in rats? We focus a lot on the Blue and Russian Blue varieties here at BBR. We are even hopeful to soon obtain another unrelated mutation referred to as Midnight Blue. However, while we may breed a lot for blues you can still expect to see many other coat colors in our rats as well. You will find an array of color profiles from blues to silvers to oranges and all those in between.

Martens [Red-Eyed Devils]

The stunning red-eyed Marten comes from Holland, and are similar to Albino, Siamese and Himalayan rats. In fact they are all different alleles on the same locus. This causes certain losses in pigmentation in varying degrees. In this case it results in a darker coated or even marbled silvery rat with red eyes. We love working with both our RED line as well as a line with black eyes we call the Black-Eyed Demon line. 


Not all rats have a standard short sleek coat. There are actually many varieties such as Bristle, Velveteen and Harley. They are mutations that give varying degrees of curl, fluff, length and even texture. Specially when considering the Bristle mutation which is coarse and wiry. We also specialize in Silvermane, and you can expect many of our litters to contain these beautiful rats with a gleaming white tip to each hair as well.
