I wouldn't expect most mice/rumpwhites to weigh that much though. I'd say pale selfs would be 65g plus, rumpwhites less on average. Sometimes they look really typey but they don't weigh any more than other mice. I'd go on size and type rather than weight :)

I weighed some of my first rumpwhites when I first started breeding last year and I think the heaviest one was 50g, the others were about 45g, I think in general they have gotten slightly larger but nowhere near 90g!!!
I'm glad that one of yours isn't the average size because mine are all little shirmps in comparison. :D

She was just a naturally fat doe. Think about the size that some fawns/reds get lol! It just looks odd without fur :p

And i thought out mouse, Mo was big at 92g. So i gather mice can be healthy even when big? Cos we've been worrying about what to do with mo.

92g is big, but it doesn't always mean they are unhealthy. The genetically obese mice seem to live roughly the same time as the normal mice!
