Thread: How fast do baby rats grow?

  1. #1

    Default How fast do baby rats grow?

    OMG how fast do baby rats grow?! One minute I had a sleek tiny baby rattums that was barely half Numnums size if not smaller, next minute i know he's catching up in size FAST. He's just 2 months and 10 days. Not even NumNums grew this fast. Numnums used to be a tiny rat and it took a year for him to grow humongous.

    Or is it just me picking out the ginormus rats?

    He's still so shiney and soft, but not coudable yet. He's grown so fast so quickly my roomates started laughing hystarically. He's visiably growing extremely fast. and not fat wise either

    Well, it may be what you are feeding him. A person I adopted a couple little ones from (an oops litter), her babies were 9 wks old and the same size as my 5 week olds! And now, my 5 week olds are not even 7 weeks and are as big as the 12 week old I have that I got from a PS!!! I gave thier momma lots of egg, cheese, chicken, and bones along with the veggies and lab blocks and fruit they all get so much of. And the babies were still getting the extra growth protein until 5 weeks, and get a little bit still every few days...

    So, they are all growing but the rescue babes are growing the fastest I think cuz of the great diet their momma had while she was nursing them, and how they ate shorly afterwards. Not fat, but very very healthy and BUSY!!!! Vet friend is surprized at how well they are doing, too! I sent her some pics...

    Well, I know someone with a 3 pound rat who is quite active all night running all over creation, so... you never know... I THINK rats quit growing at all around 18 months, but MUCH of the growing is done by 6 months, MOST is done by 12 months. Tho I don't have long experience with them, so it's hard to really tell... Just what I know. :mrgreen:
