Intros - two at once or one at a time?

I am seriously considering getting another female rat later this week (I fell in love through petfinder!). If I do, by the time she's done with quarantine, Rokk will be ready to be introduced to the girls. I was wondering if it would be better/easier to intro all four of them at once, or if I should wait on a fourth rat and intro her to the three I already have once they all get along?

I would personally introduce all four at the same time... it just makes more sense. If you're looking for tips on how to introduce them its really not that hard... just introduce them all on neutral ground (like a couch or mattress) that way they have leg room to explore each other, and also enough to room to run away if being attacked... Watch out for aggressive behaviour between the four... and if you notice them chasing each other around, its normal, they're just trying to smell each other out, anyway, Good luck:)
