I have a couple of question and comments
Is it normal for rat poo to smell bad
How would I go about fattening up my skinnier rat without plumping up my fatter one anymore
And also Remy LOVES Cheerios he will do anything and I mean anything for one its so cute

Fear poops smell particularly foul. Otherwise, young rats on high protein diets smell sorta bad.

Could have two treats, like a nut for the skinny one and a cheerio for the fatter one. It's usually just easier to separate the two for feeding one a high-protein meal.

Rats from pet stores and some breeders are fed awful diets, which make poop smell bad. Depending on what they were fed before, that could cause the smell.

It's just hard because scabbers (the thin one) dosent take things out of my hand very well yet but I'll try that I'll go get some roasted peanuts and pecans next time I go to the store

I'm not great at guessing ages but they look pretty young to me, maybe a couple months? They're very cute. :)

Argh my little piggy so I made a fruit salad with some purred vegetables mixed with some solid chunks of fruit and I added a but of honey just a tiny bit to help fatten up Scabbers and I also added some crushed up lab blocks to be sneaky but of course Scabbers is eating it which makes me happy but then I realized something my little piggy Remy is licking all the puréed veggies and honey and stuff off of it completely ruining my little plan to fatten Scabbers up
