I finally ordered some lab blocks online. The girls love them! They stashed them everywhere. Now I'm wondering how many lab blocks they should have every day? I have two growing girl rats. I have the Harlan Teklad blocks for young rats.
Thanks!

I free feed blocks myself especially when they are young and growing, but have heard of people feeding 3-4 blocks per day per rat. :)

My boys have a bowl full of blocks. When they have a few left I put another handful in. (I put the left over ones on top so they dont get old.)

I always feed at least 3 every day, more if she doesn't get as many other treats but since she stashes and then pees on them she doesn't get a full bowl.

Edit: I'd like the add that the 'treats' are actually just healthy stuff like fruits and veggies and cereal, not a ton of yoggies! :lol:

Yogies are rare here too (given after enduring something unpleasant)...veggies, fruit and occasional protein are the treats too :D
