One of our rats gave birth friday. I think shes had about 9-10 babies. I read on a web site its best to start handling them when they are a couple of days old. Only problem is the mummy rat isnt having any of it so Ive left them alone. I cant even put my hand in the cage to put food in the dish so Ive been dropping it in through the bars.

How long should we leave her to get on with it. Ive had a quick peep before mummy rat dived for my hand to bite it and all the babies look healthy. How do I go about cleaning the cage?

Hi Hannah. Ive sent pimp a pm and shes been a great help :D Yes if your still getting rid of the cage Id be very greatful of it thanks. :D I cant pick the house up with the babies in because the tops not attached to a bottom. I think my best bet is to go out tomorrow and buy a house with bottom attach and move them all over to that. Thats if mummy rat will let me put my hand in the cage again :shock: Im going to follow pimps advice and get some thick gardening gloves :lol:
