Surely you kind of expected that? :lol: That's not many babies from 6 does though :eek: On the bright side, the hairless bucks are usually balder than the does...

Ah rite there are plenty of rescues that will take the others when they are old enough.
Hi Sarah Ive seen you say this before so just thought Id say the mice bred by breeders arent really rescue cases :? Or am I missing something? Some wont take on purpose bred mice even if we wanted to, which I for one dont for many good reasons

I have to agree with that,if we breed our animals they are our responsibility.Rescues should be for victims of unfortunate circumstances.I only had 2 hairless does in the 2 litters I have just had.

I'm not going to post anymore because my beliefs of how animals should be treated are too high I do not believe in culling innocent animals it says in the bible thou shall not kill. Yes rescues should not be used because you have bred the animals its your responsibility and if you have no homes for them then don't breed. We didn't breed on purpose there are far too many animals out there who are in rescue/adoption centres due to people not wanting them or breeding litters. We gave up breeding hamsters a longtime ago because of this and not knowing whether they were going to good homes. Now we do rescue and rescue and rehome.

So much I want to say, but this is Faes topic about her hairless and this could drag on as Ive seen happen before. Sorry you feel you cant post here anymore. Both me and my husband are animal welfarists (we also dont eat or use animal products except our pet hen eggs for this reason) yet get much enjoyment from the forum. Theres no reason not to. Everyone here adores mice

Please consider that since we domesticated certain animals and changed them to an extent we have to start playing nature in order to be kind and make the healthiest and best

But agree or not, the forums open to all breeders and mouse enthusiasts I believe?

Sarahh as everyone is stating if we choose to breed it is our responsibility to the best for our animals and most breeders opinions taking litters down to a manageable size is doing the best for mum and pups...leaving a single does with say 18 pups really isn't doing the best for anyone and will only result in lots of sick pups and a very very drained mum...

Im sorry you feel you cant post anymore...

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Me thinks you've missed the point of the forum if you thought that people here wouldn't be discussing culling and things. I for one choose not to cull my litters, but I don't send my boys to rescues, but it doesn't mean that everyone has to agree with me. I certainly wouldn't leave just because other people choose to cull. Its a reality of the mouse breeding world, and in all honesty, it won't change.

Lol, nekid mice. They creep me out o.o. You should try getting some red ones though. Fat baldies ^______^. Didn't someone else mention that? Eh. Bad luck on the boys though. I've had half and half so far. *Crosses fingers*.

i wouldn't want my boys going to a rescue to be honest...i have never understood why you think so bad of us,even hate us...

We don't mistreat our animals,hurt them in anyway,they have bloody good lives i have to say! We don't cull unless it is needed,an absolute must so no animals are left looking for homes!
