Sometimes rats just feel overwhelmed by large litters, especially their first time.. The first rat I had who had babies let half the litter die. She had 11 and only fed 6. Don't fret about it.. It's only her way of making sure she can handle her babies.

Edit; 5 days old and they're still dropping like flies? That's a little strange.. normally the ones who aren't going to make it die within the first day or so. There may be something else going on here. ;/
