We are working on our hairless line. Blackberry and Widow are our hairless carrier pair, both black Berkshire. Blackberry isn't quite ready to be a mom, yet, so we'll have to wait just a bit before working on making the line more outgoing.
When adopting a hairless rat, we always suggest adopting a furred rat to partner with them. Hairless rats love to snuggle up to furred rats to keep warm. They can also get dry skin problems, so keeping some sensitive skin lotion or coconut oil on hand can help make them more comfortable.
Hairless rats tend toward poorer health than furry rats. They can have more tumors and shorter lifespans. Our hairless line has been bred to remove those issues from the gene pool.
