They will be pink and bald for 3 days. Then they will start showing hints of their markings and colors with some light fur growth.

Their ears will be fully opened at about 9 days old.
It takes 10-14 days for rats to open their eyes and to geta full light coat of fur.

So far Glitter has been feeding them fine. She usually puts them into 2 groups and nurses them like that, to make sure each baby gets to eat.
