This is a very interesting point of view. I had not thought about it this way. But I do like that part about as soon as the mice go in your shed, they're yours. I think, that would be my philosophy, except most U.S. breeders don't keep their mice in sheds.. LOL I guess I'd have to say once they go in your spare room/bedroom/closet/living room/basement/etc. LOL Or maybe once they are in your mouse cage they are yours.Loganberry said:I see the point in this, but I like the words of a top fancier who told me that as soon as the mice go in your shed, they're yours. You can easily f'em up in a few weeks with the wrong food, poor care, and bad selection for breeding, through inexperience or just a lack of ability. I have given people mice and seen this happen in a few months.
Sure, it's irritating if the stock you gave them was good, and they mess it up or give up completely, but i believe that if you just expect that to happen as default, you can only be pleasantly surprised if it all goes well. Personally, once mice leave my shed, i wouldn't weant them back nine times out of 10, or if i had to have them back, i'd probably just end up culling them.
