Pictures of Miimi will take a few days longer because of sadnes when I found one of the little ones lying there not moving. I just took him out put Miimi back in the cage. Will not disturb her and the wee ones for a couple if days now. It's a sad part of having mice when some babies don't make it to adukrhood for unknown reasons. 😢😣
Thank you. Im feeling better. I just need some more rest. I havent had time to take Pictures of my pets 😕 but they are doing well. Im having a neurological disease. And got temporary worse.
Good to have all the Mice keeping me company.. I send for food from the grocerystore. So we are doing great here.
Im going to name them and take individual Pictures of the young ones.
I understand it was a mistake, I know nothing myself about mice. I use this community to see and learn from other people.
It seems we could all learn from Ladypea's pregnancy, be that the age mice can become pregnant, the age they should be pregnant or how to prevent early pregnancy happening in the future. Maybe someone here or other information online would teach us how to separate litters and how to deal with females and males.
After 3 weeks, and no longer than 4, the babies should be separated from their mother. Females should live with females only.
Males can live with other males until they are eight weeks old. At 8 weeks they reach sexual maturity. Once a male is sexually active he will fight any new male he encounters, often battling to the death. This could explain why one of your mice started biting.
The website then goes on to say "Females can get pregnant at six weeks of age; males can breed by the time they are eight weeks old, so be certain you have them separated well before then." and says "Unless you want to be overrun, you’ll need to keep the boys and girls apart"
Hence my suggestion of finding some of the mice new homes so you have full control and can enjoy the animals rather than worrying about them.
As I've said before, I am no mice expert, this is all information I found easily on google.
Some of the mice have new homes or else I would have hundreds of mice. I'm experienced breather of pets. I never had a mouse get pregnant so small. It's not normal. I can't remove the female before they are ready to leave their mom.
And the nasty bite the small male had. I never seen that tiny mice attack each others. Adult males do that. Not small ones.
He is fine now Stuart is really enjoying himself in his new cage.
I don't need inexperienced people criticising everything I do.
I done what I can to help my animals.
I might be better of talking to myself than be online if a forum that has people critisising me for not knowing things no one can know.
I'm not God and neighter are any one else here.
So far I'm had only good experience with my pets. No animal I ever had did get cancer. My hamsters lived longer than most I know of. My mice get really old allmost three years.
I had a poodle that was so healthy people thought he was just half his age.
I should not gone online here if I had known this is a fake forum. No one here knows anything!
I'm leaving internet totally. I had it with fake people.
I am so sorry if I've caused any upset, I was only trying to show my interest and offer any help and support. I was not meaning to criticise, I was trying to highlight the importance of finding solutions so it would not happen again. It is very clear that these animals are very important to you.
