Pet Fancy Mice PICS

I'm going to have a few surplus young fancy mice (pets!! not edible!!) in a variety of colours, just opened their eyes at the moment but once fully weaned will be up for sale, they're a variety of colours, although I seem to be mostly throwing back albinos and all my champagne and fawns I was keeping back.

Wasn't expecting this litter, hence them being up for sale. I'll have males and females but would rather not sell them as breeding pairs unless you convince me you're responsible enough, I don't advocate live feeding or the inexperienced euthanasia of rodents, but I know a number of people here keep them as pets :smile:

Will post up some pics later when I count how many of the buggers I have spare and check their sexes.

£2 a mouse, and their temperements are pretty much like anything young - fast and jumpy at first but will certainly tame down a lot as they'll be going young. Will take me a while to photograph them all individually :smile: I don't even know how many there are at the moment but I wasn't planning on breeding any more until I get some more cages in about 8 weeks, not entirely sure how these ones slipped through.

The mother is an albino and the father is chocolate, the grandparents were champagne and albino, and the great grandparents were a mottled black/white and a chocolate.

Mini-house ferrets 0_0;; I always wanted white mice but my parents are crap scared of rodents (seriously, we babysat a gerbil for my friend one year, I think the livingroom was used maybe twice back then :D:D)

I also forgot to mention that the black and chocolate are tans, not selfs (ie. they have a light tan coloured belly, not the same colour as the rest of them) although I do have adult chocolate selfs it seems that the baby is gonna be a tan.

2 of the same sex is no problem :smile: I just don't like to think of them going to a breeding rack or anything and farmed until they die. I will sell pairs if I know people are gonna be responsible about it I've just had a lot of enquiries when putting them up in the local ads whereby I knew they were gonna either be lunch or mistreated. I just like them to have quality of life :smile:

Yeah, basically I'd want to know if going m/f that if they were being bred it was either for the pet trade, or if the pinkies were for food that they were being euthanised in a humane way at a young age. And that they had a cage, not necesarily a big cage, mine are in small cages, but something with fresh food and water, all mine absolutely love the wheel, food and water every day, and they all get fresh fruit & vegetables on the weekend as a treat. They like to come out, love to be handled, can be very affectionate.. most of mine aren't that tame I have to admit, but my original ones were as soft as anything because I handled them every day.
