Wow, I haven't seen these in a while!

They used to be quite common about 10 years back, but just disappeared off the radar.

Glad to see someone is still working with them as I think they're great!

I put a het albino greenish to a albino black rat and only got 8 hets. One albino dead in the egg!

Glad to see you have some nice ones. Most people do not realise how pretty these become.

Aw, bad luck BV - Murphy's law that the only albino had to be dead in the egg! :(

But you are right ... very few people are aware of how pretty these are as adults. I must get some pics of them. They're really gorgeous.

@Chantel please post some pictures of the adults if you get a chance, really want to know what they look like as adults.

Looking gorgeous :)

I will take some pics of the parents then. They are really pretty, and colourful.
