Hey guys, I have had two females for nearly a year now whom I love to death. I recently got an 9 week old neutered male (The adorable little one pictured! This is not him currently) who I have been trying to introduce into the clan. It's proving to be extremely difficult even though people generally say female to young male intros are easy! My alpha girl is seriously alpha, and rubs herself all over me and marks, then attacks the little boy. Not really sure what to do, advice would be GREAT! The little boy literally just lays there and doesn't move, he is completely docile and then my girl will jump on him and attack. I wish I had more experience and could better determine their body language ???
Tried: cages have been next to each other for a little under a week
Put vanilla on the new rat
Had them meet in a neutral place
Given lots of treats
