Hello,
I got my female rats today that are only a few month old. It's only their first day but they are right giddy and want to go out the cage all the time. Is it fine to let them out or wait tomorrow?

I would wait a bit and let them get accustomed to their new home and you. The idea is for them to know/trust you enough to run to you if they get spooked or something while free roaming.

Yeah you definitely should wait a few day before letting them out. Make sure they have plenty of toys and places to climb etc in the cage. Put your hand in for a fuss, play etc so they can get used to your smell and feel. Once they are settled you can let them out in small spaces at first. Even if it's just you sofa. Be beware they will wee and pop on all new things and places lol
