I'm sure this question has been answered here a lot, but I thought you guys would help: At what age can I sell or give away my extra baby rats? We will need to sell/give away 10 of them. They are about two weeks + 4 days old now. Thank you!!

Separate the sexes BY 5 weeks. If you separate at 4 weeks, the boys are just being weaned, and then taken away from mom and siblings. I prefer they stay with mom for a while since she can teach them so much about being a rat. :)
