Both my ratties have weird browney,orangy flakes on the surface of there skin and sometimes you can even see it on top of there fur around there back...It also gets on my hands...I first thought it was probably dry skin but i dont understand how both of them could have it on the same spot...?Does anyone know what it is and how it can be treated?

Boys? It sounds like 'buck grease'.

ETA: If it is buck grease some bread soaked in olive oil can help, as well as bathing (dish soap works well, but be careful with it about the eyes, etc), and sometimes changing their diet can help.
