What to look for in a healthy mouse?

Hi i'm going to view some mice this weekend and just wanted some tips on what to look for in a healthy mouse. I think they are of Broken type.
Also the mice are about 8 weeks old, if not a bit older. When is the best time and age to buy mice at?
Thank you!

Eight weeks is fine to take mice. You are looking for bright eyes, clean, sleek, shiny fur, and the mouse should be nice and active in the box and on your hand. No sneezing, squeaky breathing sounds, gummy eyes, sticking up fur or rough looking coat.
Who you buying from?
