I currently have two female rats, but when they pass, I’m planning on getting two young male rats. How does the care of female and male rats differ? Like, I know you aren’t supposed to feed male rats oranges.
Also, from your experience, which gender do you prefer?
One last thing. If you have/had male rats, have you had any agression problems with them? Like, aggression against their cagemates. If so, how did you fix it? Does neutering them actually work?
