Advertisement Ok so I have one male and two female rats I have had them we'll say for about a month and half maybe just a month but i am sure they are all old enough to mate and have babies. However, I don't see/hear any pinkies in there and they look just as fat (the females) as they did when they came to my house so not a big difference. Should I get a new male rat or just wait it out a little longer? They all seem happy and they are well fed. I just recently got another snake so i need to see results lol. But if all else fails I will go to petco and use their rats as food.
