Well i have gone back from 4 rats to 2.
They were not ok witj eachother, i have tried multiple intro's and bach rescue to calm them down, but it did not help much, so i decided to rehome the 2 younger boys and keep the two older boys ( still young, around 6months old now)

The problem is, when i had 4 rats, they didn't come out to free range very much. Because they were in a intro again, or because it gave the 2 younger boys loys of stress. I sat with them by the cage with the doors open to give them attention.

My 2 boys are now happy to live together,but they have to get used to out of cage time on the couch with us again. How can i get them comfortable with this again?

Give them encouragement (with treats, and pets) when they come out of the cage, also give some hideouts so they can feel safe while being out of their home. As long as they're not showing any signs of fear or stress, then I wouldn't be worried.
