hello again! and.....taming rats?

hey guys, glad to be back here again.

i recently acquired two cute-as-can-be dumbo girls (laratta and foot-foot) from someone whose daughter didn't want them. they were rarely if ever handled and are scared of people, and thank god they're not biters. i've hand tamed rats before and stopped rats biting, and i have a good amount of experience keeping rats (these are my 8th and 9th now). thing is back when i hand tamed the other ones i wasn't trying to sort out my own life, just theirs, and i know i shouldn't have gotten them, but the thoughtless spontaneity is part of the problem lol. anyway, so now i have these rats and both owners have problems with their mental health, does anyone know anything which will make it a little easier or quicker than spending at least an hour every day having constant contact with each rat? giving them treats seems to be working slowly, although laratta will still hardly ever take treats from me.

my brother is having a baby soon so he can't look after my babies from home so i'm taking them back in september. one of them is BOMB PROOF. i'll be introducing them anyway because i don't have enough room to permanently keep them apart. will socialising with the bomb proof rat help the other two to get used to the idea that us humans aren't going to kill them?

oh, these two girls are also super cute and can put some photos up if you guys want.

thanks guys
