I am breeding for velvet rats and have had a litter of Russian blue agouti and Russian topaz born to Kiwi Kiko on October 26th, 2019. I am hoping for another litter, this one from Kiwi Elsa later in November 2019. Velvet rats don’t show their velvet coat until they are about 5-6 months old, minimum, so I will be retaining a lot of the rats from these matings until that time. However, there will be some 8-week babies available at the end of December and the middle of January. Also, more 6 month olds available in April and May.
