All of my rats make really silent squeaky noises form their nose, it's not like when they complain, not that kind of squeak, just when they smell in my ear, i hear "squeak squeak squeak" in the nose at different pitches, very silent, only heard if they are sniffing my ear. It goes along with the puffing that comes from the sniffing. Normal?

Well, the thing I find is that, the more annoyed the rat is, the louder the sniff noise gets, including the squeaky sound, they still don't seem ill tough.

Sometimes rats chatter when they are upset/stressed or excited, it sounds like a sort of sniffy chuffing slightly squeaky noise. Mine chatter when I open the treat box!

One of my rats is like this too. I though his URI was coming back so I started giving him some dark chocolate but his lungs seem clear and I don't hear congestion or wheezing, just when he breathes out his nose he whistles. Especially if he thinks I'm going to give him a treat
