We obtained a few UK Mink rats from a pet shop in Durban. We inbred these rats and gave some to Mischief Managed Rattery. We then facilitated a pairing between these rats we had given them, and produced more to continue the line. Overall these rats are of poor temperament, however they consistently produce UK Mink and on occasion, UK Russian Dove.
We chose to pair the holdback doe from the 2nd generation pairing to El Naddaha, our American Cinnamon Roan buck. This produced UK Cinnamon, which was not unexpected as our founding doe for the American Mink line was a UK mink doe, as well as Pearl, which came as a surprise. Pearl is a Dominant gene that displays on Mink. Neither parent appeared to be Pearl, which means either the doe was dark phase Pearl that went unnoticed, or the buck was unexpressed Pearl which would mean Pearl does not express on American Mink (this is a theory within the community however has not been confirmed nor denied)
We held back a Cinnamon doe and a Pearl doe to pair to the Pearl buck. As yet we are still unsure what Pearl base (Mink or Cinnamon) the buck and doe are, however we look forward to learning more about this variety.
To perfect the colour of mink, and improve temperament and type.
