lol Ive been holding these since day 2 and I poked my nose in the nest on day one because I didnt know shed had them lol I cleaned her out and everything assuming she was just sleeping like my other mice. I only knew shed had them because she stood on them coming out the nest to get the milky bread I was holding out

theres so many babies in there where theyve all littered together theres too many to choose from lol and all equally cute :) x

your taking some out? do you mean removing the bucks or something? I havent done that to be honest, though it has been reccomended with having more bucks then does but Im a softie lol I couldnt do it, though I suppose its a good thing I didnt as I would have ended up removing a doe which we believed was a buck

well no i admit i dont really want to, id rather let them grow up a bit and take them to the pet shop as i know i can get rid of some in there, ill only take some out if theyre runty or if theres too many for mums to cope with :) x

yeah same here if shed had more then she could cope with I would have taken some out, she did orignally have 10 but one took itself out :( she kicked it out the nest whilst I was washing their cage and it fell off my desk- her nest is a persil box btw so I didnt expect any escaping at all
