I have been thinking of having my males neutered. The are going on 3 months old now. I have 5 girls and want to be able to take them out together and not worry about having my numbers increase.
I had only two females Beulah and Mavis. When Beulah died after having a tumor removed. I got Louise and Basil to keep Mavis company.
Who could of known that Basil would be pregnant? Now added to the family there is Marie,Bets,Olive aka"Ollie", Barney,Dukes,Sarge,Fred,Target and Charlie. That's a mouthful! I want them to be able to play together when I have them out. An hour here and there during the day and evening for each sex is twice the hours. And certain ones sleep less during the day , it would be nice to take them out to play together, than to play with one/few while the other(s) look on pitifully through the cage bars
Has anyone had their males neutered? Pros -Cons?
We have one vet here who treats my rats and said they could do them all for about $150.00. (?)
