Thank you

I hadnt really planned on having babies mice but a friend at a petstore asked me to take her because she didnt want to sell it as a feeder because she was close to having the babies, needless to say i took them.

I was thinking of raising them as pet mice and talked to the school my kids go to about having them there, well atleast one as a project.
I dont think i could give them up to be fed to anything lol
I know it will be hard to find homes for them but i have to try.
Im going to take Momma out for abit and spot clean the tank as well as check to see if they are male or female, IF she will let me

we will get into the rats once Im sure this place is going to be a permanent home so i can arrange one of the rooms into a proper animal room.

If your school agrees to take one, send 2 of the same gender. Males smell so I suggest 2 females :) There are some good online diagrams on how to sex them!

Also, if you had no experience with the popcorn stage, they're like little kangraoos!!! and pop everywhere, even out of your hand. Little spazzes. I miss having mice but I don't miss the cage cleanings!!

Good luck!

My grandfather used to breed rabbits and my pet rabbit had a litter of five bouncy baby bunnies. I mean bouncing literally. Popcorn is an apt description.



Wystan -- Pastel DeltaT Male -- 3 gallon
Abel Magwitch -- Wild-type RT King Male -- 20-gallon divided
Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided



Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?

You're making me want mice even more...

I loved the little mouse I used to have, and seeing them and the rats at work makes me want a couple again (which is a no-go for a while). Alas, eventually...

On the hamster front: the only ones I really trust at work are the Chinese Dwarves and the Robo Dwarves -- the Syrians and the Russian Dwarves (the Russians especially) I don't as too often they're ready, and willing, to bite. The Chinese and Robos, it doesn't even seem to cross their minds to try and bite. Though, there is currently one "fluffy" Syrian that will let me pet her a bit without any fuss.

With patience, I've never had a problem with biting syrians! That's all I ever had!
