Critter Nation question

650 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ahrat
Can I keep females in the TOP of the critter nation and females in the BOTTOM? Males are not neutered yet, when they are I will have them live together. But can this be done? Will they be stressed being so close? Help?

I assume you meant if you could keep females in the top and males in the bottom?

If so, then yes. I'm currently doing that myself. I have 5 females in the top and 2 males in the bottom waiting to be neutered. All my rats are very young though, I'm not sure if that really makes a difference. They're all very happy silly ratties and I haven't had any issues.
It really depends on age and the hormones that are there. They might be interested and annoying for a while, but as long as they're securely separated, it shouldn't be a problem.
