I know that nibbling is their way of grooming you. One person I read about said if they bite hard, thinking you're food, then just squeak indignantly at them like another rat would and back slowly away-no jerky fast motions.
Anyone: What do ya'll think of the idea of putting one of my dirty shirts into their cage with them, so that my smell becomes part of their territory? Would that help? I'm also thinking of putting one of my shirts in the carry cage with them when I go to pick them up from the breeders, but I'm not sure if that would be mis-timed on my part. They'll be stressed on the way home, so would my smell in a stressful situation work against me?
