Today, I found out two of my rats are pregnant. The breeder told us that all of them were male, only one ended up being male. I now have 20+ rat babies on the way and no idea how to take care of them. FML

try the rattit subreddit, they'll give you tips and you might find someone willing to take at least some of them to a good home

Find a snake breeder that needs feeder rodents for his livestock.

why? they're assholes who would probably enjoy the fact you're overrun with rats

Find someone who has piranhas. I'm sure they'll take them off your hands for you.

And they'll take your hands off you, as well.

I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy who'll take care of whatever you want, for a price. Very clean, very discreet, and no paper trails. They'll even dispose of the evidence afterwards. I'd ask on your behalf, but I'm saving my one favor for a rainy day.

Four down votes, huh? The Mafia really don't like you making jokes at their expense.

No but the whole Saudi Arabia thing you did there is in bad taste

That "Saudi Arabia" thing was a joke about hand-feeding rats to piranhas.

Buy about 80 turtles... you should be fine

my male rat didn’t have them yet, they don’t have them when they’re really young

But they drop before they're sexually mature. You can tell even without picking them up, they're that big.

Make ratatouille. Jus’ sayin’ ;)

Join “rats and mice are awesome” on Facebook and they’ll help you

If you don’t have social media, I’ll explain quick. Obviously separate. When fed their tummies will have a white color, it’s called a milk band. If there’s no milk band there’s a problem. Mom will take care of the rest just check on them. At 4.5-5 weeks old separate the males from the females. The mom should be able tot each them how to eat just ensure there’s extra food in their cage. You might be better off with making bin cages for the time being, because rat pups can fit through bars. Good luck and if you have questions you can message me. I had a litter of pups last year and learned a lot.
