One of the baby mice i brought is pregnant!

Post by timez on Fri 07 Oct 2016, 3:23 pm

Hi,

I brought some baby mice from the pet shop - 11 Weeks old - about two weeks ago.

Im pretty sure one of them is pregnant - she is massive and looks like shes swallowed a golf ball like it says.

What do i do? - I already put her in a smaller tank on her own - and gave her loads of tissue paper for a nest.

Photos will follow.

Of course I'm not an expert on pregnant mouse care... but here are a few links to pages on the forums that I think might help you, if you haven't checked them out already:

Has info on Pregnancy, Mom diets, and housing the pregnant mouse with another:

Yikes! Congratulations I guess!

Personally I would keep the girls separate. If Nebula was pregnant, is it possible that Galaxy is male? You may want to double check?

I agree, double check the your other mice's sex. Do some reading, and I agree to keep mom alone. Usually nannies are better for breeders who know what they're doing.

If they are already separated and she birthed alone I would very strongly advise against putting them back together.

If you can get some photos of Galaxy we might be able to help you out. Boys can be clever in hiding sometimes especially when you are not used to looking for it.

take time to enjoy it. I know it's probably quite a surprise and you might not know what you're going to do with them... but enjoy the little miracles. Have fun!
