Actually, we got them at three weeks. We had the formula ready, and fresh veggies, then made a baby mush of rat blocks, carrots and fruits. They went crazy for it!
It was my first time with ratties that young, and I was nervous, kept both eyes on em for the first four days, ready to rush them back to Thier mother, or a vet, checking up on how to take care of three week olds.. It was pretty stressful, though the girls are just perfect, active, popcorning, eating, wrestling, peeing and leaving tiny raisins on the bed. =]
I might not Get any more that young, I'll wait a week or two more.
