I'm not to sure,depends on if you have orpahned mice or mice with it's mother. I am taking care of 1 orphaned baby mouse now. I just set him on paper toweles and a sock to keep him warm. I am just changeing the papertoweles every other day. He's about six days old and hes doing great. If you have baby mice with its mother that hasent opened their eyes yet or JUST opened them, I wouldent mess with them. I'm not a professional so don't take my advise if you don't think I'm correct.

AnswerWait until you know the babies are a week old. And even then, avoid the mother's nest area and only clean the rest of the cage, leaving the nest undisturbed.

for sure you should not even consider cleaning a cage with baby mice until they are beginning to move around the cage on their own about 4-5 weeks of age. I am a long long time mouse and rat owner.

First you take the mice out of the cage and put them in a little box with bedding water and food. While they are in that box, clean the cage. Then put them back in their cage

you should clean it every 2 days. unless it is really dirty before then hope this helps If you have a big enough cage (which is 7.5 feet) then you only need to clean it once a week.

Have you been cleaning the cage frequently? It probably smells like puke as you have not been cleaning it. You should clean it weekly. just wanted to say that the smell is gone, and i do clean the cage. in fact, i cleaned the cage 2 days before this. it was only in her igloo which she sleeps in...

No. Provide a good feed and clean the cage regularly. They will pick at anything in the cage but soon learn the difference between fecal matter and seed.

Well first of all there should not be mold in a hamsters cage. Try taking your hamster out of the cage and keep her/him in something else for a while. Scrub his/her cage really well, get hamster "cage clean" to get the stink out. Your hamster should be fine.

Clean the cage at least weekly to keep your hamster healthy. If the water bottle leaks, or it starts smelling, you may need to do it sooner. Be sure to check in with your hamster daily to make sure it is okay.

You should use bedding in your hamster cage and you should change it and clean the cage every few days. PetProductsByRoyal.com has some nice hamster cages.

You should clean the cage and replace bedding at least once a week. Just changing the cage can be done every other day.
