i woke up this morning to a skinny mouse! i checked her nest and there were the babies! :mrgreen:

i think there are at least 7 but they were in a pile so there could be more buried. and i think all are black eyed except one or 2 with pink eyes :D . they are so tiny!

here is the mummy with her huge belly:



and here are the babies!

At this point, it's impossible to tell. I like to hold my babies from birth, but sometimes I make myself skip the first few days so that when I look in I can tell for sure who is what. :p

haha ya ive been holding them from birth and it just makes waiting so much more difficult! about the one spotted one, does this mean that the buck i bred her to carries a white spotting gene? i wish there were more spotted ones! 1 out of 11 seems kinda lucky!

thats nice to know that my buck carries that. i looked at the babies today and i see a lighter colored one with a head spot now. maybe another will pop up tomorrow! and i do not know how to sex them at 5 days. they all look the same to me (like boys :( ). but im assuming im wrong and just cant see a difference. i'll wait until i can see nipples on the girls :)

here are some pics. do some of them look orangey to anyone?:

It can happen.
Hope you find some gals.
