Come visit: "SILVER STONE" Rattery
Located in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands
We would like to introduce ourselves:
Silver Stone Rattery is a small hobby Rodentry.
We breed only with healthy, beautiful, and wonderfully tempered rats.
We have a small group of rats ranging in age, color, and markings.
Rats are curious, intelligent and affectionate animals that like to be around humans and family activities.
These pleasant little creatures have their commodious cages in our living room.
How we care for our litters:
To raise happy, healthy pets we give our rats a lot of individual attention and loving care.
We are a small Rattery and usually plan one litter a time in order to give each of our animals the attention they deserve.
By keeping the nursing doe and the other rats (their aunts) in the same cage as the litter, the young rats
are raised in a group which allows them to learn how to properly socialize with other rats.
Because our critters are raised in a domestic environment they are used to being handled frequently.
We give to pregnant and nursing females extra protein and calcium.
Mother milk is the most important nutrition for the baby rat.
When they are able to nibble solid food they are supplimented with kitty or puppy food and
porridge to provide them with extra energy.
When they wean from mothers milk to solid food we give them also a variety of nutritious vegetables and fruits, introducing them to different tastes and a well rounded diet.
This nutrition insures extra energy for the young mother and her litter,
giving the young a very healthy start.
From birth, our baby rats are carefully handled and become hand imprinted
and used to people.
From the time the baby rats are 2 weeks of age they enjoy playing. Each baby rat gets special
playing time which allows them the opportunity to get used to human interaction.
The baby rats of Silver Stone may leave the Rattery at about 5 weeks of age.
At this time the little rats are properly used to people, are in a very good
condition and socially well developed.
All our young rats are with pedigree and are supported with extensive documentation regarding their
nutrition and care.
Rats are intelligent and social animals.
They are also herd animals and like to live in small groups which contributes to a happy and interesting life for them.
They will offer you much enjoyment by watching them groom each other, playing together, and sleeping close to each other.
We always advice that you keep your rats in a small group or at least with one companion of
the same sex. As long as the rat has been handled as a youngster it will bond to you and give you more enjoyment!
We enjoy visiting shows and exhibitions with our rats, and attend to inspections where our rats are judged on external, type and condition.
