Hi! I have two 9 month old male rats called Loki and Bucky and I've had them since they were 6 weeks old. They are currently at 600g and 430g (He's naturally small). I have recently got three more baby rats (Alaska, Frodo, and Dexter) and they are about 10 weeks old. They are all a bit over 200g and are healthy and eating well.

Are the babies too young to be introduced to my adults? I've heard stories of adult rats killing small babies and I'm really paranoid about this happening to my baby boys!

Hi, at 10 weeks they should be ok. Use the carrier method for introducing (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=52&hilit=Carrier+method)

Good luck.
