Introducing babies... Empty Introducing babies...

It's been a long time since I've had mice as young as my new trio - they're 6 weeks old yesterday. I got Violet when she was about 12 or 13 weeks old, and Honey and Ginger were 9 weeks old when I got them. So the last two times I've done introductions all the newbies were 12 weeks or older once quarantine was finished, and thus technically adult mice.

When quarantine is finished for these 3, they will only be 9 weeks old. And now I can't remember, so if someone could help jog my memory that would be great - Is there a specific age mice should be before they can be introduced? Do you guys introduce babies to adults, or wait until they're 12 weeks old?

Cheers Smile

With my girls from rescues or pet shops, I never waited for a certain age, but I've waited for them to grow an itsy bit if I had bossy mice, like my two brindle sisters. With my litters, since I was introducing babies and their moms, I waited for eight weeks just so the moms wouldn't get upset at a new adult. I'd think nine weeks would be okay. Smile
