How long overdue can she get

Post by pattgal on Sun 03 Jun 2018, 11:08 am

I have 2 pied mice that were due yesterday. Factoring human error in counting days how much longer can they be overdue safely? Ive provided comfy quiet arrangements for them. What else can I do?

Define 'due'? Mice have a gestation period of usually 19-24 days - I say usually because I have had 1 go as early as 17 days though she had a litter of 17 so..

Oh ok, I thought it was just generally always 21. One had 9 pups yesterday and I'm still waiting on the second. I had to separate them because the later one was stealing the other mums pups and eating them :/ So I put the guilty one in with my best mum (calypso) and hopefully she sets her straight.
I am still curious how long they can safely go over. Calypso was "due" on may 27th and still has a small belly. either she ate a few or is holding some behind.

I wish! Thinking back, in 5 years of breeding like 95% of mine gave birth on day 19.
