    Update: I acquired a new nice pup recently, and this time I brought my alpha & Oreo ( the rat who got angry and bit previous new pups ) along in the carrier. It made a massive difference. As Oreo was in close quarters with the new pup, and they experienced the car ride home together I think it...

    I just wanted some other opinions from more experienced people in the rat community on whether or not they are all female! They all look female to me from what I've researched and no balls have dropped or become even slightly visible. I was not told the age, but I assume 5-6 weeks. The local...

    Hi everyone! I just got my two boys, Thistle and Fern, on Saturday (they are about 7 weeks old now), and I've been trying to bond with them using baby food. However, they only seem interested in the beef-flavored one, and I'm worried that it will be too much protein for them if I continue to use...

    Hi :) I recently got my first rats - 4 females that are about 8 weeks old. One of the babies is smaller and more timid than the others. I've been following all the trust training advice, using treats, familiarisation etc but it seems as though I make progress with her and then the next day it...

    Hi! So I recently adopted 2 baby boy ratties from a rescue organization, they are about 5-6 weeks old, so pretty young! My question is if I should be picking them up as much as I can since they are so young, I want them to be used to being held and what not. I’ve only had them for 3 days now...
