A 2 week old mouse is still considered a baby - however properly determining the age of a mouse is easy. If the mouse has hair it can usually feed itself. Place food on the floor of the cage to allow easy access. Offer both hard, and soft food (soak hard food in water to make it soft) also keep food in the cage at all times along with water. If the mouse can not eat on its own get some kitten milk from a petstore, warm small portions of it and try feeding it with a dropper usually if they are over a week old they can lick the milk, try place a very small ammount of the milk in the cage be sure its not enough for it to drown! Make a nest for the mouse by tearing a dry papertowl up and placing it in the cage in a pile so the mouse can burrow and stay warm and feel safe.

AnswerA few days ago we got an orphan mouse. We feed the mouse every 2 hours with cow's milk and we warmed it with deluded water and fed it with a medicine dropper. That was our last resort because every pet store was closed. We finally got to a pet store that opened and got kitten formula. We drop the milk on our hands and the mouse licks it up. The mouse has no fur yet and it's eyes are shut. It's very spunky, and it loves snuggling into my hands. When we are not holding her in our hands, we put her in a shoe box with socks and toilet paper. We also have a light over her, but we leave a shady spot...just incase she gets too warm. Hope this helped!!!

ANSWER

If you are sure that it is two weeks old, feed it seeds. I took care of a two week old mouse, and I feed it seeds. It would be about the time that the mother would be feeding it seeds.

You shouldn't separate the mother and the mice. Leave them in the same cage or container. If the mother doesn't feed the baby mice, then you can feed it milk with an eye dropper.

The mother mouse does!

Being that mice are mammals, the mother feeds its young with the milk it produces.

Mice are mammals---their mother breastfeeds them. feed them paured down milk warm witha bit of water in it.

It is very hard to keep baby mice from dieing when the mother is not there. You need to feed them a substitute milk every 2 hours with an eyedropper. You need to keep them warm too. GOOD LUCK.

It is very unlikely that such young mice will survive without their mother to feed them milk and to groom and care for them. To prevent them suffering it may be advisable to take them to a vet for advice as to what to do with them.

always have them in a warm area and feed them powdered milk.

Consult a vet, but in the mean time let the mother take care of them

can you feed regular milk to a baby mice?

You can put baby mice in with adult mice but it has to be their children for the adult mice to feed them.Yes, but you must be very careful. Try not to get to much of your scent on the baby mouse. Sneak the baby in, when the mother mouse is not looking. Only if the baby is about the same age as the ones that are originally the mothers children. You can easily tell by how much fur is on the pinkies, how big, and if their eyes are open. This does not always work, but it can. It depends on the mother, she will decide. Why trust me? I have bred mice for about a year and a half now and i am almost an expert.-experienced mouse breeder, owner, and lover

Yes. If they are young enough to require milk. If older,weaned, they can eat for themselves.

While baby mice are young and are babies dont feed them that is the mothers job but if there is no mother, try to give them blended fruits and vegies or any other milk.

Their mother breast-feeds them until they are old enough to eat food on their own (3-4 weeks).

She probabley would if she had another litter of her own about the same age. If she did not have a litter she would not produse milk for the wild babies.

User Avatar

Yes you can, mice will eat anything,it will not harm them

User Avatar

Before baby mice open their eyes, they're too young to be weaned. The mother mouse will feed them milk. If the babies don't have a mother or have been abandoned, they'll need to be fostered or hand-fed, or they won't survive.

I have two mice and i have had them for about a year now. I feed my mice Hamster and Gerbil food. You can buy it at a Dollar Store or at a Walmart. It is really cheap, only about 2.50 each. Thank you,

I seriously don't know. I think you might want to feed it something mice would like
