Question about Husky.

I was just wondering and getting a little concerned about Husky. I know it's probably normal, but when I get Husky out of the cage-as much as he is a little darling and will fall asleep anywhere- he just poops and poops and poops! I know it's not a big deal, but it starts to smell and I dont always want his poop all over my clothes!
All I was wondering was, why does he do this and will he grow out of it or something?
I understand that this occurs when some rats come to a new home, but it's been a week now and as much as I love him sometimes I dont want to get him out so much because I dont want to get poop every where- I do get him out though-so if you could explain eveything to me thats fine

It probably will stop soon.Is he still a baby? They cannot always hold it.But also rats will poop when they are scared sometimes.

You can litter train him.
My rats are not litter trained,but never poop out of their cages...unless of course I have them out for over an hour.Otherwise they will not poop out of their cages.So you can try litter training him,but he will probably stop once he gets more used to his surroundings.

yes, he is a baby and very sweet, I had him out last night and he did not poop on me once! I was so proud of him! I am trying to litter trai them, my other rats are litter trained, but because my babies run around so much all the litter goes everywhere and I end up cleaning their cage out everyday.
thanks for your reply it was much appreciated!
