My name is Leslie and I've had Bleu Royale Rattery since 30 May 2003- We are located in Sacramento, California
I concentrate on breeding healthy, socialized and beautiful rats. All my rats are pedigreed and have a lineage dating back to my first breeder rats, born in 2003.
None of my rats have tumors, and at the time of this update (6 November 2022) there are no reports of
genetic mammary tumors or other genetic conditions.
I stay in contact with my adopters throughout the life of their rats, and if there is a report of any health condition, I will email the adopted families of the siblings and check on them. If two rats from the same litter develop any health conditions that are genetic (and not from poor care) I will cancel that line.
My rats are my pets before they are breeders. I will only breed rats that have perfect health and temperment. Mother rats are only bred twice and not before 4 months of age (though 6 months is the age we try to stick to). Our rats are handled daily, raised on safe litter and fed Mazuri Rodent Blocks. Handouts include organic fruits and vegetables and tofu though the blocks is their main food.
Mother rats give birth in the nursery, which is a quiet room with a huge window for natural sunlight from morning until night. There is plenty of air circulation and the room has vents for the air conditioning/heat.
Mother rats give birth in their own private aquariums .All babies are handled from the day of birth and will be used to dogs, cats, toddlers and children by the time they go home - though the first day at new homes they may be anxious.
