My boys, except the youngest, have stopped bruxing unless they REALLY MEAN IT. Is this common as rats get older? I remember Mr. Chuckles would brux as I looked at him in the cage (to be let out).

I'd say it's just that it's become routine. They're used to you coming over to the cage to be let out, so I'm sure it still makes them happy, but they expect it of you now. It's always been hard to get my girls to brux, but when they do, I really cherish those moments. It means they're having an absolute blast and you've done something great for them. Maybe try surprising them more with new things and new fun activities and see if that keeps them interested? :3

Thanks for the idea. I was going to set up a play pen full of tubes and stairs. Something like a cat tree surrounded by tunnels, but more rat tailored. Also a change in treats maybe?
