Russian Silver

Russian Silver (Silver Blue)





Russian Silver is a very attractive color, a clear blue-grey color. Often as bright as "Sky" Blue, it is heathered as it derives from Russian Blue. Heathering is small "clumps" of color along the length of the hair, usually yellowish. This is not the regular banding of ticking, and gives a slightly speckled effect to the color. The eyes are black, and against the pale blue of the fur, it has a very striking effect.

A Russian Silver rat is a Black rat with the double-recessive dilution of both American Blue and Russian Blue. Because American Blue tends to be easily modified by carried recessives, there may be a great variation in shades depending on what else the rat is carrying.
