hi everyone :) i got two girl hairless rats from a pet store the other day because they had bad allergies in the eyes and i didnt think they were taking care of it. they had the girls on hard hay like stuff and they are HAIRLESS :cry: not good for skin or allergy.. any way they are doing sooo much better with the eyes but one of the girls always poops on me when i pick her up and her poop is green? i am new to rats but i have not seen that before. anyone know what that is about? ps. they are so sweet, both are pink eyed. thanks trish :D

haha, their poop changes color depending on what they eat. sometimes my girls have reddish or purple poop, sometimes it's green. i give them hamsteroids to nibble on but i guess they eat more than i think they do, ha ha! :) it's normal and will go to a more "normal" color after you give them some better food.

piccies? i love the nakies.

If she's never had greens or veg before, make sure you introduce them slowly to aviod an upset tummy :) But so long as her droppings aren't runny or mucousy, don't worry.
