According to the calculator a Freddy max 2 will take 5 rats:-viewtopic.php?f=19&t=175
If the existing rats are 12 months old, I would recommend getting 2 youngsters, of around 12 weeks old. That should (?) ease introductions and the youngsters will have same age company. I would follow the carrier method for introductions though.
