Why did you leave them together? Why were they together in the first place actually? Are you talking about rats here? They should not have been housed together in the first place, unless you got them from a breeder, they have atleast a third generation pedigree, their bloodlines are exceptional and free of megacolon and heart defects, you have written permission from the breeder for their breeding rights, you have thoroughly researched breeding and genetics, and know how to take care of a pregnant/nursing mother, and last but not least you have enough money to cover any emergency vet visits and a check up after they are born (at the very least 500$). With that said, if we are talking rats, rats are not solitary creatures. They cannot live alone or they will be lonely and depressed. If your female is now alone she will need a cagemate, A FEMALE cagemate. Also what "pellets" are you feeding them? What kind of bedding is she on? She will need nesting materials soon. Well anyway good luck!
