Best Answer

A newborn baby mouse looks a bit like a pink jellybean and is very small (about the length from the last joint of your little finger to the tip). One about 3-5 days you can see dark patches on it's skin if it is going to have different coloured fur. It begins growing fur then and around 14 days opens it's eyes. At 2 -3 weeks it reaches what is known as the 'flea' stage where it can run very fast and jumps around a lot. It grows out of this stage at 3-4 weeks and at about 4 weeks of age it is weaned.
