Post by AmyLynn on Fri 13 Jul 2018, 6:48 pm

Hello,
My nine baby mice (Still with their mom) will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. When will mom start weaning them and is there special food that should be provided for the babies during this process.

Moms usually start weaning babies around 3 weeks old and fully weaned at 4 weeks. Males should be separated by5 weeks old so they dont mate with their sisters or mom.
Most babies start nibbling on solid food about 2-3 weeks old. I usually place crumbs or small pieces of the lab block in the cage for them to get a taste of it.
