when is the best time to take the babies away from their mothers as my are 3 weeks old now and the mothers are due again any day, so was wondering when best time to take the babies out if it was safe to do now before the mother has the new babies.

Four to five weeks is when I remove the male babies. I remove the females at six to eight weeks. I don't breed back-to-back as you have done, though.

You can take the male out, let the mother raise the babies, then re-introduce them after the litter is weaned and the mother has rested a while.
