I put brie (from angelmouse/rachael) in with theo (from sarah/Dawsons Mice) three weeks ago and last night brie gave birth. Her sides were splitting and I really expected her to do it last night!! I was out at my friends 13th birthday party os when I got back at about 11 me and my mum started mixing more food (I had run out), when brie smelt the food she came running out, which was wierd as being so pregnant she just woddles, and my mum was like 'is that montie?'.
Then we heard little squeaks coming from the middle of the nest, when montie moved off the babies we saw them!! I didn't have enough time to count but one of the little babies is so FAT!
I am sooo excited as it's my first ever litter (from my first ever mouse). I really want to go and look at them but I know I shouldn't :(

YAY!!!! :D

I've already marked on my calender when I can start holding them :roll:

No, I'm just like that. My little boy Theo is such a mummas boy, If I walk past the cage he just sits there and looks really sad so I just HAVE to pick him up!

Ah, thats still lucky though! My mum will feed them if i'm off on school tripes, the ones where you sleep over. But she refuses to touch them. Shes said she'll try with the babies though.

awww congratulations!!!
the brother to theo is exactly the same looking sad at the window, except he's a big scardy cat but when I hold him he's just so squishy and adorable.
I just had a litter with him too.
Look forward to see how yours come out.

I put him with my satin cinnamon ( I think that's what she is)
I will post pics soon want them to get a bit bigger first, but they're gorgeous! lol I think I got 2 satins, so I'm chuffed.

Would like to see what you got from a vari though. Are you gonna take any out?

I may do depending on how many there are and bucks/does.
I should get satins to as I think the varis carry satin!

Have you taken any out?

Congrat's Simone, get pics up so we can see them :)
I wouldnt worry about walking past the cage/entering the room, it wont desturb mum one bit, its the poking at the nest that may upset her, see if you can catch her when she is feeding and place her in another box while you have a peek at the bubs, remember to rub your hands in the bedding first ;)

So I counted them and I have.................(dun-dun-dunnnnn) 15 baby mice!! One is a runt :[.
I attempted to sex them and sexed them all bar one as girls! which is quite possibly completely wrong so I will try again when the little mousie boobies grow :lol:
