Connie mentioned to me (Morgan) via phone conversation these facts that Bonnie gave to her:

Two of the girls have a tailless father and a tailless grandfather, the other girl just has a tailless father.

BFF Remy was a black spotted manx who produced a high percentage of manx... he is the sire of the three youngest boys.

Dam to the three youngest boys was 15 months old when she had the litter of 11!

Bonnie's last litter (the one that the three youngest boys came from) there were 11 babies born, 8 were tailless, but there were "leakers" and those were not viable.

This is info found on the carriers that the rats came in:

Black Blaze Hood Type DU Manx

All of this refers to the three girls I think:
