If you don't have a breeding pair then they'd be fine about being moved. Mine aren't too hard to catch if you're used to handling mice by the tail and don't attempt to bite or anything, they're just not pets that you handle like the fancy mice. So go for a same sex pair and you'd be fine.Kage Davies said:Thought as much. The other thing is, do they mind being moved? Because I still have to go from here to Hertfordshire every term, and I don't want to upset them too much if they're not keen on handling and moving and stuff.
When I got the harvest mice I got two bucks and an unrelated pair of does. I then put them all together to let them work out which pair was dominant, because only the dominant buck and doe breed in a harvest mouse colony. Then when they'd worked this out between them I split them into two pairs so the other pair would also breed, hence I have what I refer to as my dominant and my submissive pair. The dominant pair has produced three litters so far and the submissive pair one litter.NaomiR said:what do you mean "submissive pair?" Love the new tank by the way, my tank is really wide but I wish I'd gone for high, might look at getting a taller one for them
