    So I got my first pair of girls at the very beginning of December, they are about 5 months old now. I just go another set of girls that are about 4 months old. I've read a bit about introductions, but my question is since nobody really has had time to settle in that long will it be easier? Especially since its two pairs of young girls. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    It is possible that it might be a bit easier but it mainly depends on their personalities, age, and experiences they have gone through

    Here is some info http://www.ratshackforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32368 and joinrats.org has a lot of good info.

    let us know how it goes and we like lots of pictures :)

    I would think so. That's been my experience too. But if you have one or two with strong personalities then it might take longer but all in all, I've never had much issues with intros and small groups.
