every new rat i've had has had softened stools for the first few days, presumably as their diet adjusts.

If they are getting too many fruits and vegetables it can make their poop softer / give them diarrhea.
Rat poop doesn't come out "hard" though. It hardens from drying. If you poke a fresh poop and it dents / flattens, that is normal.
If it's so soft that it's liquid-y, then something is up.
