Giving treats to your rats is one of the best ways for them to get used to you when you bring them home. This will make the rats trust you and see a caring friend in you.
Make your pet comfortable by not scaring them, and be easy going. Open the cage and leave the treat on one of your fingers that you will bring inside the cage (not throug the bars), let the rat approach to you and sniff you before taking the treat.
Your pet rats will feel comfortable with you when they start taking treats from your finger without snifing them- this is when you can start handling.
