    Congrats. You might want to try feeding all of them in their normal enclosure. This will eliminate the feeding response when you have to handle them to transfer them. I've seen quite a few get bit this way (including myself which is why I stopped feeding in a separate enclosure).

      I would keep on feeding them in a seperate enclosure. The whole point of feeding them in a seperate enclosure is to not get a feeding response when you take them out of the cage. Because they no that they do not get feed in the cage!

        Lots of experienced keepers recommend feeding in their existing enclosure.

        Read this thread for the recent debate:

            You don't say!?

            That's the whole reason I posted the link to that much debated topic so he can read both sides and make his own educated decision instead of this thread turning into the same discussion...

              Its simple to break the argument i went to Vet tech school this is what i learned in school, I feed in Separate enclosure so no reason for debate i see both pros and cons to the way i do it and others feeding in cage. An i do thank you for the input.

              And thanks i am SO happy that the FT worked we went and got us some more rats to hold onto or next feeding. YAY!!
