Hi, I got three new rats at the weekend after not having rats for a few years. One of them in particular seems to have very red coloured droppings. Is this likely to be blood in which case is she sick? Or just what she's eating? Or because she's in a new environment? Thanks in advance, just a little worried because I've only had them a few days.

Have you fed them any red food such as tomatoes or peppers or is there any wood in there cage dyed red. Another common Clyrculprit is if they get there paws on a red crayon

I fed them tomatoes yesterday and there is dried red pepper in their food. Could it be that?

Yep particularly if she likes them. Keep an eye on her but if she seems bright and well its probably just that
