Hello! I have two boys, about 9 months old. They are not completley tame yet. I want to get one or two more babies. Should I wait untill the old ones are completely tame, or is it okay to get some more now?
Generally, I look for a lot more than tame in our rats. Our rats are emotionally bonded with us and trained to be competent family members. Adding more rats to a situation that isn't right yet doesn't feel like a really good idea to me. Rats actually seem to help to socialize each other, once your current rats are good family members they will help your new ones fit in.
