Baby mice can be separated from their mommmas at exactly 4 weeks of age or when you notice that they are eating the mouse food, drinking from the water bottle instead of nursing.

I would say 5 weeks or more for females, but to be on the safe side, 4 weeks is a good age for males.

Should a pregnant female mouse be separated from her cage mates?

Yes we had a pregnant mouse who was in a cage with 7 other female mice, so we put her in her own cage. When she has her babies, she will make a nest for them so make sure there is plenty of bedding. If you do not separate them the baby mice might be at risk, although a pregnant mouse can be kept in the same cage. If her babies are in the cage with other mice, she might nip and bite the mice to protect her babies though

Can you put baby mice in with the older mice and will the mother feed them?

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?
