How many female mice can be housed together safely? For example, if I had a cage that could fit 15 mice, does that mean it would be safe to put 15 mice in that cage? I had heard that around 6 female mice is when they start to break into separate colonies, but I don't know how accurate this is. I've never had experience with female mice, so I wanted to get all of your opinions on this.

I'd say you would want 7 or 8 max in one cage. Though, even with that many, the risk of them splitting is high and I'd recommend that many only to someone who has experience and knows how to handle problems within the colony. For a beginner, I wouldn't recommend more than 6. Though 5 might be a better start. You could always start off with a small colony and introduce more girls later when you feel more comfortable doing so Smile

I agree, I believe 5 would be a good number.

I personally wouldnt want to even try larger groups, though I know there are people who've done it successfully. The most I've had together at once is 6. I might be willing to try a couple more. Maybe. But that's it.
