I am getting a new rat in a few days. She is 5 months old and a single rat. I was told her owners did everything wrong so she is a rescue situation. I have also been told that she bites. I have two female rats of my own that are complete sweethearts and have never bitten me so I don't know how I should do this. Should I put her in with my rats? Should I let her watch me handle my rats so she can learn from their behavior? Please help.

Three female rats together is never a good idea. Mainly because, theyre'yd be three females, and they'd be together. Now it just so happens that RICKY RAT is a single male rat, who is eligible. His requirements aren't much, a small cage, a little wheel, and a water-bottle thingy...
