Hi there, was just wondering, it looks like a lot of people interbreed there mice?? is this safe and should it only be done with certain varietys?? From what i know of i dont think you can get deformed mice (if they are inter bred) was just wanting some more info???

from what ive heard, you need to interbreed (brother to sister pairings) for 60 generations to get a pure colour gene. start getting problems at 100 generations.
some lab report i read. if that holds any weight or not im not sure. you can definatly in-breed for some time. its not a bad thing with mice
id ignore my previous post. thats just what ive read from lab reports. sounds like youve gotten proper advice from some experienced breeders there :)
