Welcome To My Mousery!
Welcome to the mouse portion of my website. Please note I will post mouse litters in the rat nursery.
The mice are a work in progress. But the line I am working with are just as sweet and social as my rats. They love to climb up the side of the cage and onto your hand, and they love to be kissed and cuddled. I am shocked by how loving they are!
I breed for health, longevity and docile personalities mainly. The colors & coats I have are Recessive Yellow Self, Black Pied Fuzzy, also Black Self & Agouti Self. Coats of Fuzzy, Satin and Angora are carried by all of my mice. I have been breeding my lines for a while now and know them well. They are all pedigreed and I keep very precise accurate records.
Please do not think I breed feeder mice, as I do not. I breed for pet only. All of my mice are held from the day they are born and treated with love and respect. They are fed completely natural high quality grains, fruits and veggies and spoiled with toys, wheels and big cages. Most male mice do not like to be housed together as adults, but some lines are so docile that males can live together. My boys live together all their lives without any fighting. I am very proud of that. My females are of course housed together and separate from the males. The only time they meet each other is when I have a breeding planned. I wait until my females are 12 weeks old before I breed them and I do not over breed them. Most girls only breed once for me and then retire. They may breed twice on a rare occasion and if shes just exceptional.
Housing mice in plastic bins, critter keepers or cages.
Life span is 1 1/2 to 3 years 2 being average.
