Talking 4 new rats for me

You read the title right
Here's a description of the sweethearts:

They are all male, almost 5 months old, one is black with white spots on his
belly, one is brown, the other two are beige/blonde twins
.

They'll be getting neutered ASAP.I'll take 2 to the vet @ a time.
Since I am going to neuter the males,think I also should spay the females?
Believe they are still young enough.
Less chance of females getting tumors then..correct?

Just waiting on the owner to get back to me regarding getting the ratties here to my town

You can bet pics will follow
I have no names picked out at the moment.
May name one Wentzie

Pics are going to take a tiny bit (they are coming from Nova Scotia.) Martin is a nice name...Might want something that goes with Sakura& Tenshi (my other rats) names...not sure.Nah...scratch that idea.
Names don't have to "match".
I kinda sorta want to call the brown rat Templeton...you know like on Charlotte's Web?
Was always one of my most fave books& always will be

[EDiT] I'm feeling strongly for Wentzie& Templeton for 2 names.
Reasons: "Templeton"-rat from one of my most fave books.
"Wentzie"...as in Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy !

So,that still leaves the "twins" nameless atm .

awsome!

If I were you I would either get JUST the girls spayed or jsut the boys done. Rats can die during sugery and its a lot to put ALL of them through, and if all the girls are done they have less risk of tumors and they cannot get preggers, or the other way, the boys get nuetered and the females cannot get preggers, so its less they have to go through
