Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and soon to be a new rat owner and wanted to get your opinions.

A woman local to me is giving away 5 female rats, 2 are 16 months, 1 is 8 months and the other 2 are 6 months old. I told her I'd like to take them, but I also think I'd like to get some baby rats to raise from a young age as my own.

I was thinking of getting the baby rats on Monday, and getting them settled into the cage on their own until next weekend when I'll introduce the two groups together. Do you think this is a really stupid idea, and it would be better to just either take the 5 or get a bigger group of baby rats?

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Thanks for your help!

Will maybe quarantine the young rats for a few weeks to settle in until I take the older ones on.

there is no reason for you to hijack every intro thread on the board, you have enough of your own

Maybe you should tell that to the person in another forum who just had one of her rats die because of a rat she brought home from a pet store who turned out sick.
