As long as you know what you are doing it's a great experience.
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.
