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. Yes
You should not disturb the mouse at all. Leave her with her babies and let them bond and get used to each other. After three days, you can then look and pick up the baby mice, but remove the mother mouse from her cage, or she'll start moving the babies around.
Yes it is possible that the daddy will harm the babies. He could eat them or injure them especially in the first week of birth. It's smart to remove the male mouse until the babies are at least 3 weeks old.
It is normal for a mouse to have 10-12 babies. My mouse had 10. The most babies a mouse has reportedly had is 17.
a mouse can have up to 5 to 7 babies in a litter
*"How many babies can a mother mouse have in her life?"It is possible for a mother to mouse to have over 9,000 babies in her lifetime.
no they will fight, and some babies may die.
A mouse can have a litter of 8 to 10 babies; some more, and some less.
No! Any male mouse or rat will eat any mouse babies. dont let male mice with babies until they can see and have fur!
Yes, mice can have 2-14 babies. But when you breed, you usually get 4,5,6,7 babies. In rare cases, a mother mouse can have up to 20 babies!
If the mouse is a pet mouse and not a wild mouse, no. The pet mouse will not have the fear of human scent.
by its stomach
As long as there is one male mouse and one female mouse in the same cage there will most likely be babies.
No way. If the baby mice are in the cage long enough with the mother mouse, the mother mouse will indefinitely eat the babies.
A mouse has babies just like any other animal. When the mouse is about 5 weeks of age it can have babies. It is wise to separate your females from your males before this age to prevent any unwanted babies.
There are about 1-18 mice in a mouse litter.
the first litter will be smallest,about 2 to 10 but as she has more babies it can be up to 30 babies!
Hello. My pet mouse bred with a wild mouse, she had 11 gourgous babies, but they all died after about 6 months. We believe they had a disese passed on from the father.
Not really... the male mouse will probably mate with her shortly after she gives birth and this can put stress on the mother, and could cause her to eat her babies.
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...
See if it has babies or not
They have babies!! They are mammals so of course they have babies! Ever heard of a mouse omellette ??
Not exactly, a lot of people may tell you that the gestation period for a mouse is between 18-23 days but my mouse turned out to be pregnant when we bought her and she had her babies at 6 weeks!
Babies in litters of 1 to 10 have been seen.
