Introduce them slowly to her(putting them together for increasing periods of time) and then put them together after they seem to not mind each other. It is just like introducing a full grown rat to her no matter what the size doesn't make a difference to them. Also make sure the cage bars(if it is that type of cage) are close enough together that one of the babies won't slip through.

Okay, those are perfect for baby rats! They love to climb on them and they are almost completely safe. I use them on two of my birthing cages. I think you'll have a great rattie family with her!
