1/2 wild Orphan baby Mice!

Post by shadowmegs on Sat Jul 03, 2010 3:55 pm

These guys have lost their mother and are only 2 weeks old. They are 1/2 wild so will have issues that will make re-homing difficult. I've been feeding them every 2-3 hours. (not getting a lot of sleep!) Their previous owners wanted to try and eat one of them.

So I now have 6 orphan mice...they have survived the last 2 nights without their mother and now that their eyes are open they should be okay..but keep your fingers crossed for them that they will continue to do well. And that I will make an okay mother mouse.

Aww they are so cute! You are such a nice person to look after them. How could anyone want to eat anything that cute? I hope they continue to thrive

Thanks!

All babies are still doing well although they are 1/2 MAD and think they are invincible. Here are some pics I took last night:

Aww they are sweet, when they are old enough are you going to rehome them? And how old do they have to be when you can rehome them?

They will be weaned by 4 1/2 weeks as that is when I have to separate males from females to avoid my babies having babies...if any go to new homes then they will leave at 6 weeks so that I can fatten them up before leaving. Because they are part wild they will always have social issues, they will freak out in new environments and require a lot of space to climb and race around and be crazy. If I can find people who I trust to care for them properly and who understand that they won't like to be handled often then I will re-home some. Nobody has showed any interest in taking them so I think they will all stay with me now.
