How much to feed?

Post by AllThingsGeeky on Fri 24 Mar 2017, 6:08 pm

How much do you feed your mice? I plan on getting a trio, and was wondering how much to put in their dish without much waste. One teaspoon per mouse? One tablespoon per mouse? I plan on feeding Brown's Tropical Carnival, and my mice are going to be feeder mice/an untracked line. Thanks!

Mice should always have food available. They eat a lot. Much more than you probably think. Just check the seeds in the bowl and see if most of them are empty, and all the things in the food that don't leave shells, like dried fruits, should be gone. That's when you want to refill it, because there's basically nothing left except maybe a few seeds.

I put in about a 1/5 cup sized scoop and refill once they've eaten most of it. For me, with a group of 3 mice, that was about once every other day. Now that I have a group of 6, I'm needing to refill daily so far.
