 PEW vs. Albino - Rat stuff

I’ve read so many different things on the internet - but I would like to get some experienced rat people’s opinions.

Is there a difference between the albino rat and the PEW rat? I’ve read yes, and no. "Physically they’re the same, but genetically they’re different." or "People often call PEW’s ’albinos’." I just don’t know what to believe.

The reason I’m asking - is I would like to breed my albino male. I have about 7 people lined up right now that "missed out" on my last litter. And if all of them get "pairs" which I highly recommend, that’s 14 babies. 3 people even gave me deposits - weird? Yeah..

But I know they don’t want albino babies - so I don’t want to breed a rat for no reason. Too hard on Mama, and nothing good can come out of it. Just not worth it.

I know the petstore my Doinkers came from - and all his sisters and brothers were albino or B&W hooded. If that means anything...

Thanks in advance.
