I don't know the answer to your question, but...

...could I see some pictures of the babies?

(I got Augustus at 5 weeks old - so little, and such soft baby fur!)

Babies should be separated before they are five weeks old.

So sometime soon. If Dad accepts them you can put them in with him.

4.5 weeks to just under 5 weeks is the norm. I prefer to leave my babies (ooops rescue litter) in with Mom as long as possible so that they learn as much about being a rat as they can. :)

Start intro'g carefully to Dad and see how he is.
