In order to tell what a rat weighs do you have to take them to a vet? Or is their a scale that can be used? So far my babies are doing great. Knock on wood. The one that I thought delivered wasn't the one that deliver and for the most part she leaves the babies/mum alone. Except for when the mum takes a drink or a small break than they watch the nest.

I weigh my rats fairly regularly with a small digital postal scale. I have heard you can use a digital food scale as well if you have one.

I have a small kitchen scale that I use. It was cheaper than a postal scale, weighs in pounds and grams, and can tare, so I can put a bowl/plate on the scale, tare it, and then put the rattie in the bowl, etc. :)

Or Walmart. Or nutrition stores ;). They're not hard to find and they're cheap to buy. I'd go nuts if I didn't have mine!
