Um...I'm not an expert and am expecting my first rats in four weeks, but I've done a bunch of reading up in the last couple of months? From what I've read, apparently the answer is "Both or Either", depending on what you or the rats prefer. If it were me, I'd put a little of all three in there just to give them a choice. I'd also go out on a limb to say that your one little girl's hiding would be normal, esp. since this is their first day home. Give them a couple of days to settle in but watch them in case they start having more than just minor antisocial adjustment. Have they always been together or have they only just been introduced to each other? It seems like that would make a difference.
I won't make any further observations since I'd just be parroting what I've read all over the place without any real insight. I will say post pictures! I'd love to see what they look like!
