This poor little pinky was pushed away from the rest of the nest .. at first I noticed how thin it looked compaired to the very fat and healthy litter mates.

I removed him and looked him over to find something I have never seen before.
I thought worms but my mice have recently been wormed and on closer inspection it looks like his stomach (internally) might be broken and has leaked around his intestines.

it also had undigested milk comming out his anus.

has anyone else got any ideas on this?

I rarely suggest culling. But in this case, I will recomend it. That mouse is clearly missing some important organ (wether it be the stomach, or part of the intestines, or otherwise) and is probably very uncomfortable. :(

Although, the stripes look neat, I wish that was the colour of the skin, and not . . . well . . . some sort of problem. Zebra striped mice might be nice.
Yes. I will be saving this photo in my health file.
Very useful.
