Hi!

Has anyone got any ideas how to mark my mice so I can tell them apart more easily? One has a notch out of her ear from fighting when she was little, so I can always tell who she is, but I wouldn't like to notch ears on purpose! Ear tags are too heavy it says on the web. Does anyone else here mark their mice in same colour same sex groups?

Thanks for any advice!

i think ur allowed to put a little dot in their ear with a pen, from what i heard i think even the judges at show dont mind if the mice have a little marker dot inside their ears.
this may be wrong tho, might want to ask cait - shed know :) x

Not true about the dot for showing, sorry ;) Any mark on a mouse would get it marked down, artificial or real.

I believe that in the US they mark the tails with non toxic Sharpie markers. You could probably also use food colouring pens since they're designed to be eaten.

we fur clipped once a suspected baby eater so we could observe her, but it turned out to be a one off and never happened again so she was safe that time :lol:

also done it with a degu once who was on meds :) works a treat!
