12% and 14% not 12$ >.<

normally too much protein can make petshop mice break into rashes and lose fur. Unless they were from a reputable show breeder then they can withstand up to 24% GRANTED they say that is acceptable within their bloodline.

Aspen shavings are okay but sometimes they can be a little dusty. I had used them as bedding for my rats and it would sometimes cause a little sneezing. If you bought aspen already what I would do is measure out how much would be in the cage (once it was spread out from its compressed form) then you can put in a bag and shake it for a few seconds and let all the dust fly out. Once you are finished with that bag of bedding you can continue to use aspen or you can try carefresh ultra or natural. These beddings help a little with odor but they are a little more expensive. Either way any of these two are a good choice for small animals such as mice.

Try to avoid seed mixes with sunflower seeds as these should ONLY ever be given as treats and avoid peanuts. Petshop mice have a nasty habit of having a food allergy to them and it can be deadly. If you have any questions feel free to PM me, I have kept mice for years with long lives and have studied them to become a breeder in my 50's (got a LONG way to go).

i was just about to mention this site lol

love CreekValleyCritters on youtube
