Lazy rats:

I have 3 boys, their all completley lazy, they have a huge free range area a cage with lots of things to do, the free range area certainly isnt boring, and all 3 would rather sleep than do anything, they just sleep, i drag them out and they'll have a quick run about, playfight, then go back to sleep. I've tried pea fishing and other activities too, they only pay interest for a few seconds, then either go and eat or sleep.

what can i do?
they literaly only ever sleep. my two hooded rats are the most 'active' out of the 3 - and even they only spend literaly a few seconds exploring etc. My husky/roan only sleeps and eats.

Join the club! My husky boy is fat and lazy. So very lazy. My hooded loves to run about and do things, annoy the fat boy etc. I usually just get him out to run around with me, that gets him motivated.

For almost the past week my girls have become quiet lazy :?
I don't know if it's because the weather is rubbish and they can sense it or they're getting older - Dotty and Doris are about 10 months and Roxy is 7 months.

They used to be quiet active about 10PM, but now it's as quiet as can be. Altho saying that I'm not sure how active they are in the night/early morning as I'm so use to their noise now.

I used to have fat lazy males but no more. My rats are on a strict diet and don't get any sugars, salt, low fat and low protein. Now they are lean and healthy and so very active. I can't keep up with them climbing all over the place and running an popcorning. :)
