(modified) FN 142 okay for 6 week old bubs?
« on: April 16, 2008, 12:53:55 AM »
I'm going to get 2 little boys next week, and by that time they will be 6 weeks old. Will it be safe for them to live in a (modified) FN 142 at that age? They'll be my only rats, and will have both halves to themselves (lucky spoiled little brats!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:).
The boys: Sam and Dean - The girls: Canary, Kara, Phoebe, Piper, and Paige - The rescues: Anna, Tessa, Lilith, Ruby, and Castiel - The bunnies: Java and Juno

If you modify properly (remembering that it is necessary to cover the top, and bottoms of both levels as well as the sides and fronts!) your little 6 weeks old should be just fine.  Remember to post pictures!  :BlueDumboSmile:

I had my 6 week old babies in my modified FN and they did wonderfully in it!!  Now that they are a little older I'm getting anxious to take the hardware cloth off....I hate it on there!!  I think I saw something on here that said they ahve to be about 350 grams to take it off..shoot..they smaller one is only 250  :doh:
My rats think you are gross too!!
