For reference, the parents are 45g and 35g at the 6 month mark, I'm hoping the offspring can outweigh them. The buck appears to be of a mixed type, adopted from a local rescue at 8-ish weeks (from what I understand, someone's pet mouse was sold to them pregnant and they really didn't know what to do and just surrendered everyone, he was one of the babies) and the doe is a feeder from a reptile show, my sister purchased her at about 5 weeks as a gift for me. (Awesome part is, now I can "give back" by letting her keep Charlotte and Ethel since her hamster recently died.)

Realized the ambiguous runt is ACTUALLY A GIRL. :eek: I was on the fence about them for the longest time because of the developmental delay, but I can clearly see nipples now, so that's 1 boy, 4 girls. She will now be known as Cordelia lol.

Day 12 Weights:
8.0g - Ethel
7.9g - Sieglinde
7.9g - Vincent
7.8g - Charlotte
7.0g - Cordelia

Day 13 Weights:
8.3g - Ethel
8.3g - Sieglinde
8.2g - Vincent
8.1g - Charlotte
7.3g - Cordelia

Two girls have passed up the boy!! I hope they maintain this trajectory. Is there some genetically-linked tendency for selfs to be bigger than piebalds by chance?
