Is banded a recessive gene? Don't recessive marked meeces have a high risk for megacolon? Would megacolon be visible as an expanded belly? I think so, but I can't say where I read that.

Thanks, Sarah. My mind is like a rusty steel trap; it catches stuff real good but doesn't let it go so well on recall. Another question, since you seem to know more than I do: Does megacolon cause sudden acute symptoms or does it develop over a longer period of time?

Half wild mousies are a genuine pain to handle- that's if you can get your hands on them at all. The ones I've ended up with flew away at about the age of four weeks- I swear they can levitate or something and I think they can move at the speed of light. They will never make good pets, as they have the high response to noise and movement and go ballistic for no reason whatsoever.
