Another litter! [Jan. 22nd, 2011|12:32 pm]
Health of Fancy Mice

jesusatemeout
So I've changed the aims of my little breeding project I've had going for a while. Before I was focusing on both chocolate tan & black tan banded merles, but as luck would have it I obtained a fluke-colored doe from a friend who had gotten mice from me and bred them. This doe was PEW colored (though I am unsure of her exact genotype) but carried merle genes. I bred her into my black & chocolate mice and next thing I knew, I had both champagne tan and dove tan merles! Anyways, now I am working on those in both banded and unmarked, and this is my very first litter of entirely pink eyed (PE) mice!

There are 3 does and 1 buck. One doe is champagne tan banded merle, another just champagne tan merle, the other a strange silvery color. I am undecided if she is dove, or silver, or some other random color just now popping up. The buck looks to be a dove tan merle.

On to the pictures.Collapse )

Sorry I don't quite know how to use this thing,
But Bonnie, Thanks for the advise on introducing Winnie to a new friend! I did everything you said, and it worked out so well! Winnie didn't even chase or nip her, neither did she to Winnie, mind you she is so much smaller, only 1 1/2 months old. Her name is Anna. She is a squeaker! but so cute! Thanks again!

Worried about Wendell [Apr. 19th, 2010|09:28 pm]

Hello!

I am a new owner to two girls, Winnie and Wendell. I have had them for about 2 months. They are both 4 months old. Yesterday, when I went to clean their cage, I put them both in their clear balls to run around the house and noticed that Wendell was breathing a little heavy and not going off to explore like her sister. After I got their cage cleaned I put her back in and she went right into her tube and was making kind of like a kissing sound constantly. I did see her eat after that, but she seems really inactive, and not quick to run off. Usually she bolts when I open the door or go to pick her up. She just doesn't seem like her normal self. Last night, she had stopped making that kissing noise and was kind of doing off and on. I have been watching her closely, checking up on her, she has no  fluid coming out of her nose or eyes, and her coat is still shiny. I did pick her up after work to make sure that was still the case tonight. Could she just have a cold or maybe be stressed? Please! Any insight would help.

Thanks!

 I went back to the animal shelter to adopt the three sisters to the other baby mice that I got last time. Their names are Ghost, Suspender and Havarti. They were the last mice at the shelter and now they have a good home with me.  =^.^=

Meet my new "Squeak Squad", and watch some video footage of my new pets. =^.^=

I adopted the six mice from the Toronto Humane Society, and Alexander is also from there. The baby girl mouse was one that my friend found wandering along the sidewalk out in the cold, either an escaped or unwanted pet. He took her in and then gave her to me. I named her lucky. =^.-=
