You MUST email me. We need to talk about rats!
First off, You need to FREEZE your carefresh…. Yes I said it. Freeze it. It contains mites and fungi that can hurt your rats! Mine contracted ringworm from it once. Its bc off the holes in the packaging that can get moist inside and grow bad things in them! Freezing it kills everything!
And The scratching may be bc they are younger rats. Twitching or running about fast is bc they are younger. Sneezing(Chirping) is them showing they are getting used to their surrounding smells.
I have had many rats and have one at the moment! I love ‘em.
