Just went to feed Millie and thought it was odd she didn't come running out (with her HUGE tummy!), had a quick peek in the nest and she's given birth to 4 really large babies!! i'm so chuffed.

Will get pics in a few days as i don't want to disturb them too much :)

Thanks hun. I think her pregnancy hormones made her lose the plot somewhat, she has burried EVERYTHING! lol, oh and her treat today was a little bit of strawberry....which she tried to put on the ceiling of her tank :? lol

I think Millie is a broken black tan? Congrats on the babies, and keep the pics coming! I'm trying desperately to establish a tan/fox line, but so far no luck. I just look at everyone else's beautiful babies and sigh...

I've just always classed Millie as a broken tri colour. I'm about to take pics of daddy mouse too, so i'll pop a pic on here of him. Both Millie and Danger (buck) are similar in colours, so the babies should turn out uber pretty :)

also if someone knows the technical term for Millie's colouring, please let me know :)

I've recently introduced my Dove Tan Doe (Ollie) to Danger (Buck), so can't wait to see what i get from that breed!

Heres the pics of daddy (called Danger)





again, unsure on the technical term for his colouring, but he has a lot of tan on his tummy, whereas Millie just has a little bit here and there on her tummy.

I'm not an expert, but I would call them both broken black tans, and of course absolutely gorgeous. Where do you live? Could I borrow your stud? I have a black self and a siamese I'd love to put to him... *sigh*

I need to spot fantasizing about making all of these beautiful colours of mice! And just stick to owrking on a few at once!!! x)

I'm already working on perfecting broken brindles, creating mock extreme blacks, agouti tans, and perfecting my own rex coats.... But it's all so cool!

Oooh sounds good :D
I really want to get a satin rex, seal point siamese, blue self, tricolour and a brindle. bucks or does, i don't mind. BOTH would be wonderful!! just i have no idea where i can get them, there doesn't appear to be any breeders of specific colourings around where i live in Northumberland, UK. :(

We always want what we can't get; want to breed everything that we can get our hands on. At least meeces don't cost as much as cars do, for the post part. though , when you decide to go ahead and keep as many meeces as some of us (like me) do, it becomes a household expense that has to be accounted for. Myself, I skip having snacks and beverages except what I cary from home in order to account for keeping meeces.

I think the kitties are more expensive; clumpable litter is expensive!! I might try a dirt base in some of my tanks and see how that works out, as aspen is kind of expensive.

I keep thinking about my abyssinian; think, think, think...to breed or not to breed, that is the question.
