Just so I understand, she had a litter, and when they were one day old, she and her litter were put in with a male for two days? I am having to resist the urge to haul back across a few states to cybersmack that 'rescuer' on the back of the head for her absolute stupidity. I can understand a random joe making that mistake honestly, but someone who rescues rats?? In a pinch she could have put them in a storage bin for two days if she had to. Walmart sells 'em cheap. I've got an image of this person with a dunce cap on her head announcing herself at a rats anonymouse meeting "Hi, I r a rescuer...I likes rescuing soooooos much, I goes out of my way to make more rats soes I can rescue them. Duhhur!" (I know, I'm being an over the top ***, but I am doing some serious headdesk right now).
I'd say it's very possible she could be pregnant again. Ugh. What a nightmare for you. As for getting a male....heh, I'd vote just keeping one of her female babies and naming /her/ Sampson. Let's not have any more oopses!
And hmmm. If she is pregnant, she could have another litter around the 6th of January? Unless rats do that delayed implantation thing? I don't know if they do or not. Make sure she has plenty of high quality food. If she's preggers again this soon, it's going to be super stressful on her poor little body.
