I'm Carly. I am 13 years old and am currently starting to breed mice. I have had 12 mice in the last 4 years, and currently have 3 breeding females. None of mine came from petstores. My three breeding does are Guernsey, Ice Tea & Gatorade. Ice Tea is a black coted mouse. Gatorade is a banded something I believe, though I am unsure, and Guernsey is just a black and white one.

Hi Carly and welcome. All my mice have been from pet stores as I cannot find a local breeder and at the moment I am waiting for 6 fuzzies to be ready to join my existing 2 girls (or thugs as we prefer to call them). I am pretty new to keeping mice and when I saw that one of yours was a Guernsey I thought that that was a breed. Then I remembered that it was a breed of cow - I have a lot to learn!

Hee hee! I call some of my tri/transgenic meeces 'paisleys'. What's in a name; it's all for fun!

Its not the mouse's name i am questioning, but my knowledge of mice that I am worried about really Moustress but it would be funny if your 'paisleys' were mine as my surname is Caisley so my mice would be Paisley Caisley hee hee hee.

Don't worry. I don't know much about breeds either. I thought it was the breed of mouse when the breeder told me too.

I was clueless at the start as well, even considering I've been a science nerd for about fifty (!) years. It didn't occur to me to look online for information at the start, as I had just got my first computer and wasn't quite sure to do with it. It didn't take me long to figure out that I like furry mouses a lot better than the plastic ones. I also called the ones black and white meeces cows, (Holsteins) and named one of my first meeces Bossie. I had a ton of fun flailing along while learning and doing.

I still enjoy a bit of that now and then, actually. My transgenic meeces are sure evidence of that!
