Help For New Mouse Mom!

Post by AmyLynn on Sat 30 Jun 2018, 11:35 am

So, I wish I would have read more about purchasing mice before I got my 3 fancy mice from PetCo. I purchase 2 female mice Pepper and Princess Fluffles. They were happy and get along very well but we read that getting a 3rd was optimal.

4 days latter we picked up their litter mate Ruby who we were eyeing up before. The 3 seem to get along well. They often sleep in their little wicker house together. The only arguments over the last 2 weeks has been over the mouse wheel and no one was hurt. (We did order a 2nd wheel)

We have now noticed that Ruby is pregnant we got her 20 days ago now. Does she need to be separated from her litter mates? There was some sites that say yes and other that say no.

In addition I have concerns as to if Pepper was properly sexed. I attempted to search online and found that the images for males and female mice did not match Pepper...I do not know what to do? There is no vet in our area that are comfortable sexing mice until Tuesdays (I called around) . I called the pet store they said that they can take a look a Pepper and help get her properly sexed. They apologized and advised they were sexed by the breeder. However I do not know if I can trust them. Is there someone out there that could help me if I provide so photos?

I am super concerned about my mice. They hate being apart but I do not want anyone to get hurt...can someone offer some suggestions to this new mouse mom (soon to be grandma mouse mom)!

Yes, we can definitely help you if you post photos Smile
We do recommend separating pregnant mice from the rest of the group... there are reasons for this which I have currently forgotten, lol. Let me get back to you on the reasons. I don't have much experience at all about pregnant mice so hopefully someone else will chime in soon.
