My Rat Basil had a litter of 12 pups, yesterday, (May 6th)! I was SO excited for her!!! They are adorible!! I had a few questions.....Im a first timer with newborns and i was wondering if there is a way to tell male from female already or what age to look for that. second i know that the boys must be taken out by 4 1/2 - 5 weeks......when do they start to grow hair??? Last question......anyone in Orange County want one???? Free to good home NOT SNAKE FOOD!!!!
