So one of my rats, Sprocket, is completely white with black eyes, and i hadn't seen many of this colour on rat forums or YouTube, and when I looked it up it came up that black eyed whites have bad health and alot of them get epilepsy and are deaf. Are these facts true- and how do I find out if my rat is deaf.

Edit: He does also have quite a bit of poryphin but he doesn't seem stressed at all, is this normal

Is he a true BEW? These are usually high white rats bred to remove any colour. I've never heard of deafness etc, just the potential to develop megacolon.

I don't think he's a BEW, but a pearl. They are beautiful off white rats with dark eyes. :) Wait til he's gone through his adult molt and see what he ends up like :)
