YES! A female mouse is the protector and provider of her young until it is safe and ready to fend for itself. If you remove the young prematurely she will be extremely upset. There are different levels of parental investment in the animal Kingdom. 1.Little parental Investment- A mosquito who drops her eggs off in a pond 2.Some Parental Investment- African Cichlids put the baby fish in her mouth to protect it after they are born. 3.More Parental Investment- Mice and many mammals remain with their young ( in mice they are called pinkies) until they are nursed, have grown in size and are fully capable of surviving on their own. 4.A lot of Parental Investment- Monkeys, Some Birds and Humans maintain close bonds with their offspring even after they are fully grown and independent.

For a higher sucess rate of the baby mice being born or growing up, once you see the mother mouse begin building a nest she should be placed by herself until the babies are out and about by themselves in whatever you have placed the mother mouse in. answer i would say yes u can ask a pet sore for more info i have heard the father can hurt the babies but that hasn't happened to mine i left the father mouse wid its babies i think its ok but if she has many babies 4+ then he should be removed if u don't want another batch of babies in 3 weeks its best to remove the male straight away because she can get pregnant within 24 hours of giving birth so watch out for that! i had big problems!!and also the babies inbreed with the mother so remove the baby boys when they are 4 weeks old but don't put them with the father because they will fight if a male doesnt know or hasn't growen up with another male in the cage they will hurt each other...
