Looks like a Berkshire on the left and a striped roan on the right to me.

@smokierat - they are only about ten weeks old and still very nervous when free roaming in the house. I used have all females before and bought the two boys to see if they were much different in temperament

Yeah, they could be but they are from a litter of hoodies - I know their father was a hooded rat since I owned one of his sisters, and he mated with a female hoodie brought in from the UK - all of their other siblings had typical hoodie markings which is why I picked the two oddballs of the litter. Sheldon sits on my head while I watch TV - Leonard prefers the armpit of my jumper.

Oh wow, I just spotted all the rat smilies....

Hooded and Berkshire are both caused by the same gene so it's easy to get berries and hoodies in the same litter. The blaze on the other one is what makes me think he's a striped roan. He's either that or a very heavily mis-marked blazed Berkshire. If his colour starts to fade with each moult you'll know he's a roan. I'd need to see more photos to tell better.

Ah you are going to have so much fun getting to know them Grin im sure they will get used to the big spaces,and be up to know good in no time!When mine were a bit wary like that,out on the bed etc i used to leave a few boxes out so they could hide if they felt the need

Awh they're beautiful. I remember when my two boys were that size... Now they're two big cuddly softies Smile. I had a hooded rat a while back. Lovely temperment but he was quite jumpy for the first while too Grin
