There should be a mouse-a-holic's anonymous!

I couldn't resist getting two new girls. I believe Button is a chocolate self? is that right? and Fidget i know is a dove tan :D but she has a white fleck on her forehead which i couldn't resist for the cuteness factor! (also their coats are super soft and shiny....could they be satins too? as i already have a dove tan - Ollie - but her coat isn't like Fidget and Buttons)

heres the pics:
Fidget:





and Button:




(I'm unsure what it's classed as if it's classed as anything in particular but Button has a darker nose than the rest of her coat)

Enjoy the pics xxx

I'm picking up 4 new mice at the end of summer... I really shouldn't, but they're good colors, black tans that I've been looking for forever!

I was good yesterday when I bought a bale of aspen chips; but all they had was boys. I didn't look. Got to save room for the litters that are on their way.

One of my problems with acquiring new meeces is that there are no breeders nearby, so I can't really plan on when or where I get new stock. We should arrange a cross country relay in order to transport and distribute our bounty between cities, etc.

Same problem here. I only found out about a couple breeders and rescues by accident. It seems more people breed rats?

Autumn2005; you have major breeders in your state, though that doesn't necessarily put them near you...

Fidget is a little beauty; are you sure, why I think...it must be...that's MY mousie you have there!? And Bottom looks like a Burmese to me. Background color too light for chocolate, and she has what appears to be a point on her nose.

*moustress jealous* *hmmm* *sneak* *sneak sneak* *POUNCE* *grabrunrunrun*

i had about 14 mice to choose from,but fell in love with these two. I already have a dove tan (ollie) but Fidgets little stripe on her head was too cute to resist!

They're livewires mind, clearly not been handled very much or well at all. However my fiance and I have spent lots of time with these two girls today and they're settling down nicely :D xx

Very pretty ladies!
I had a chocolate buck that looked Burmese when he was younger,but then he molted out to be just chocolate.

I was going to call the new Dove Tan 'Willow'.....but, when I got her out good lord was she lively and needless to say....a Fidget!! :lol: I think both her and Button haven't been handled in the correct way. I nearly went nuts when the guy in the shop :x (really disliking shops now) picked them up by their tails!! I never pick my meeces up by their tails. For the most part my mice happily jump on my hand, and if not they get gently scooped up. Only time i ever handle them with their tails is for sexing the young.

Also do you think these girls are satins? they have a really glossy almost metallic sheen to their coats. I've been told they're sisters from the same litter. xx

That's the problem in living in a really BIG state... I can drive further IN state than other people do to get OUT of state. But the hardest part so far has been finding them. Most databases of breeders I find are either out of date, or most breed rats instead. There's actually a rattery about 4 miles from my house. I was really excited, until I found out they only do rats, not mice. So how do you find the breeders?

These girls look awful young to be breeding already.

And I reckon the choc is actually a burmese! Fidget is a great name, I have a rat named that too! hehe
