Re: housing them together

I've always heard of problems housing hamsters and gerbils together. These guys (girls? I need to check) are very young now, so no problems yet. If we have problems, we'll separate them.

Easy to check on mice! Females are the only ones that have nipples in the mouse kingdom. Poor males

Males have nipples - they just aren't as visible. And that's not reliable anyway. Their hind end is far more reliable, their... well, their BALLS are like, right up IN YOUR FACE.

Makes sense, I know my males' nipples were always covered in fur and I Think I only checked because I'd read it online. But yeah, their doodly bits are pretty obvious though perhaps less so on juveniles.

Oh, you said "himself" so I figured you meant male lol

I have never had success with male mice living together without a fight eventually. And I think yours will probably fight eventually (if they are males). Male mice are very territorial.

Male mice should be fine together in a large enough cage with enough hiding places.

I had 3 males in a 55 gallon tanks with tons and tons of hides..it wasn't meant to be. I had a male that KILLED the other one over night. They were perfectly fine the day before, and then during the night....the other was "mauled" to death. (They were the same size). I personally don't risk it.

They're adorable. I used to have a few mice - they're great little pets, but make sure to get a relatively quiet wheel! Th first one I had sounded like an ambush, I swear.

Doc reminds me of my Mozzerella - seems like they have the same temperament too. Mozzerella was like a mini dog. And Hickory looks just like others I had.

I never understood why people are squeamish around mice. How could you not love those adorable faces with those whiskers!? Have fun with them.
