Not to be rude, but you said in the pregnancy thread that they were in aquariums, which really aren't enough space or very healthy for them. Also, how big is the wheel? Do they run on them?Sky14 said:My girls are pair'd up 2 to a cage and each has a wheel and they have lab blocks mixed with the food I give'm and each cage has a large salt/mineral lick thing AND I take each one out indiveduely for at LEAST 45 min and if I can manage I'll take 2 out at a time. *Gasp*
I think they do it for the attention.... all I do is say NO or BAD or STOP CHEWING YOUR CAGE and I'll tap the cage if I'm near but is that what they want? Attention? Even if it's negative?
My rats are to smart for their own good... :roll:
I'm not trying to make you sound like a bad rat mommy. I'm just saying, AT LEAST 45 minutes is not enough. One full hour should be the least amount of time your rat spends out of the cage on average. It should never fall underneath that. One hour is already very little time. There's 24 hours in a day - I can't imagine spending 23 in a cage, let alone.Sky14 said:
