Don't worry about that Dom, all creams I've ever kept have done that (not every mouse but all strains). It's like they moult and then sometimes never come out of it. It tends to happen to mine when they're older and usually it's the does. It looks like someone has put greasy fingerprints on them lol - like the grease spots on the paper you get fish and chips in :lol: In my creams it only happens to a few older does as I said, but it's nothing to worry about.

Just a thought but what is its parents? it can happen to them depending on there parents!
Parents as far as i know were creams also, these are show lines from a good breeder so i wouldnt think there would be anything else in there.
