Welcome to the Big Apple Rattery website! Home of the friendliest rats in NYC
Big Apple Rattery is currently under new ownership. We thank you for your patience during this time. There have been changes made to the website, so please take your time and look around <:3 ) ~
We are a small home based rattery located in NYC that specializes in Manx (Tailless) and Dwarf rats. Currently we are working with the following... Downunders, and Marked rats such as dalmatians, masked, patched, bareback, capped, hooded, and variegated. Our coat types come in Standard, Rex, Velveteen and occasionally hairless. Ear types come in Standard and Dumbo. Even though a majority of our rats are adopted out as pets only we strive to produce show quality rats by selectively breeding rats that best represent show standards. Improving our lines with each litter and contributing our dedication to the fancy is something that we have a great passion for. We tend to focus on the more rare mutations because we feel those are the ones that require the most improvement. Health, temperament and longevity always come first of course, but when considering to breed any rat, they must have several desired traits or qualities that we are looking to improve and produce. For example I wouldn't just breed for a certain color or to correct a lines ear type. We are proud to say that we have been owned by rats for over 15 years now! We think keeping a small rat pack is the key to happy, healthy and long lived babies as all of our ratties are able to receive the care and attention they deserve.We may not have what you are looking for right now however if you subscribe to our litter announcement blog at http://bigapplerattery.blogspot.com you will be notified via email whenever we have new litters.We also know several breeders in and out of the country and may be able to refer you to someone that can help you.
