Sooooo, I just got my first Mice after a long break from breeding. Thanks once again to that lovely lady (she knows who she is).

I had always used shredded paper as bedding, but decided to give hay a go as it's nice and natural.
I am aware that hay can carry Mites and other little nasties, and also heard that microwaving the hay before use makes it safe. I tried this.............

Thought you'd all get a kick out of the fact that this was not one of my better ideas!

I became alarmed when I smelled burning, and, as I opened the microwave door my fears were confirmed as smoke POURED out and I could see that the hay had ignited :eek:
THE SMELL!!

My whole house stinks, even now, hours later!!

Apparently 10 minutes is too long :lol:

Note to myself: If you try this use a covered container as that may prevent a conflagration. ;)

Heh heh heh - sorry to laugh but that is the sort of thing I would do myself - I wonder if we are related.

I think we could be distantly related - I have an oversized body and slight webbing of the fingers. As for my head - the lights are on but nobody's home! LOL
