Today I got 2 female mice. I tried for 3 or even 4, but the place I got them at only had the 2 females. My question is do I need another 1 or 2 female mice? Or will only having 2 be okay? I'am new to mice, so I think bonding them could be hard for me, but if you think I need more then 2 then I will do my best to figure it out.

In general, it’s recommended to keep three or more females in a group. This is because it usually balances things out between them better, so there isn’t just one submissive mouse taking on all of the attention of a dominant one. And also if one girl suddenly dies you wouldn’t be left with one lonely grieving girl.

But if for whatever reason you can’t introduce another girl and your pair seems to be getting on just fine, it’s not the end of the world.
