special foods

are there any special foods that'll help rats grow faster when they're young, or breed, or provide more nutrients to nursing young, or produce larger litters or anything? this one guy i bought some of my rats from told me that you should give milk to a nursing mother to benefit the babies, does anyone know of any other things like that?

I feed basically the same things as Dawn. I am wondering though about the nature of your question. Are you planning to breed? Breeding is not something to take lightly. If you are in fact planning to breed I suggest you educate yourself as much as possible and give it some serious thought. Your rats should also have atleast a 3rd generation pedigree in order to be breeding quality and the breeder you bought them from should be willing to mentor you. Sorry if I am jumping the gun, I am just concerned about anyone going into breeding without being fully informed.
