    That's great, but you should always be reading and learning more. I'm learning how to make my own balanced food for my girls; never stop learning. Why do you only have one rat then as opposed to at least two? Surely you know they are very social and need at least one other buddy.

    She said she is only getting a female pair or one to go with hers. And what is so wrong if you were going to breed rats? All you need to do is have a place for the babies to go whether it be a pet store, families, or for food. I am a successful rat breeder and love it. As long as you know what you are doing it's a great experience.

    If those are the names you want they sound good! It's also fun to see what they look like or how there personality is and then name them. I find naming before just doesn't work as well. (Like my rat Skunk got his name for his white streaks and Zombie because of his personality)

    Breeding without an understanding of genetics is dangerous. If you do not know what you're doing, leave it to the professionals. Forgive the lack of a better term, but it's just as much "Back yard breeding" as those who breed their mare and stallion together because the baby would be soooo kyoot. Rats are hard to home. I've done some reading around and Morganshow seems like she can barely afford to upkeep of one rat, let alone the care of multiple. Breeding just for the sake of breeding is wrong.

    Shouldn't we all know this by now? Too true!

    Sorry, but you guys are changing the topic of the original post. The person who posted asked what to name her two, now female baby rats. Not about breeding, because that's obviously not what she's wanting to do :)

    Im not to good with names, but you like Penelope, what about Sasha or something? Might be easier to name them once you get them though, that way you can figure out what they are like :)

    The topic ended up being changed. Whats the big deal?

    And yes, she is getting females, so we are told. Ok, so breeding is no longer an issue.

    My Hamster is named Penelope btw. She's a sweetheart with two exhaust pipes on her bum.

    However, when someone is encouraging an individual who does not know anything about breeding rats to breed because it's a fun experience, THAT is when someone needs to step in and say NO.

    Rats are not hard to home here. Breeding horses is WAY DIFFERENT than breeding rodents.
