Breeder's Assistant Forms

Litter Number Application

Use one of these forms to register a litter with NARR.  The Breeder's registered prefix is placed within the rat's registration number for easier tracking.  Both the sire and dam of a litter must be already registered as breedable for the litter to receive a number.

There are two forms available. The first is the "standard" Litter Number Application and is used when one breeder owns both the sire and the dam. The second is the Alternate Litter Number Application and is used when the sire and dam are owned by two different breeders - in essence a "co-bred" litter. A co-bred litter will receive a litter number with the prefix of the dam's owner, and rats may then be registered with either the prefix of the dam's owner, or both the dam's and sire's owners (customary).

These forms are reserved for those that want to register all individuals from a litter. In the database, they show connection via the same litter. It is therefore expected that all individuals you report in the litter number application will also be registered individually, including those that died during nesting (there are a couple options with this.. contact us for more information). If you only intend on registering a couple or rats from a given litter, do not register the litter. Rather, just fill out individual registrations forms. However, for a more complete database, we encourage you to register all rats.

Any breeder submitting an application for a litter number must be a current NARR member. For cobreedings, both the breeders must be current NARR members. Litter number applications, as well as all individual member registrations, must be submitted and completed within 6 months from the date of birth of the litter. NARR reserves the right to not issue new litter numbers for members who consistently do not complete their litter registrations (babies can still be registered as individuals, though).
