What should I know before breeding my rats?


Answer by  ladybud (1069)

Have a different cage or tank for the newborn's. Don't touch the baby's unless your moving them out from the mother for good cause. Rat's and mice will eat their young.

You should know about the pedigree, if you can financially support several baby rats. You could end up with up to 20 babies, so it's important to know that you have all of the space that's required. Additionally, you should know that you may see blood.

Breeding rats its effortless, U dont need to worry about anything. As long as there is a male and a female with him they will have babies very soon.

Male and female rats multiply as fast as rabbits when breeding. The male will eat the newborn baby rats if left in the cage with the female.

Why are you breeding rats? Are you doing this for a hobby or for commercial purposes? Research the types of rats, which ones are good for which purpose.

You should think about the purpose of breeding your rats, if there is a demand in the area and what you will do if you can't sell them. Look into the consequences of breeding your rats because they can die if not properly cared for. Have your rats checked out to see if they are able to breed.
