When is it the right time to release an orphan wild mouse into the wild?

I would say the right time is when the babies have grown up

(around 2-3 weeks when they are in their 'flea' stage) and are

starting to eat and drink by themselves. Don't let them get too

used to being in captivity or they will assume their food is always

there and will not seek it out.
