How much should they weigh?

Post by Barbiefly on Fri 22 Jul 2016, 10:20 am

I weighed them yesterday and Codo is 47g and Podo is 40g. I remember reading on here somewhere the healthy weight range but can't find the info again. I am pretty sure they are in the healthy range.

From looking at pictures of them, they would appear to be of a healthy weight. I'm not sure what the healthy range is, though.

Personally, I've never weighed my mice, mostly because I don't own a scale that would work for weighing mice.

That's a very average weight for a mouse. Big show mice can be like 80g, little bitty guys can be like 30. With mice the more important thing to watch is for sudden large changes in their weight!

Yes, definitely depends on the build of the individual mouse.  Some mice are just naturally tiny and stay around 20 grams, other mice are built larger and completely healthy weight for them at 80 grams. 

On the 9th my girls weighed 35g, 58g, and 57g.  And yes, those two bigger girls are pudgy.  But I used to have a PEW girl that got up to 50g and was a perfectly healthy looking weight. She was just larger overall.  So try not to focus on the number so much as how they look. But definitely monitoring their weight for big swings either way can help you catch when something may be wrong.
