Well I don't personally know about mice as I have only had rats and gerbils as pets, so sorry I can't give you any help in that area.
But if you are doing a college thesis, I would assume you would have other resources to go to for advice on this, and not just rely on a pet forum.
If you are seriously planning on culling your male mice just because no one has answered your questions, rather than having a solid plan to seek out information from internet or library articles, as I assume one would do if they are seriously looking for information in regards to a thesis project, then that sounds a bit hair-trigger and ominous, yes?
Just as an FYI, this forum is actually very friendly, and also helpful, for questions people have about their PET mice and rats. Not really for people who are obtaining rodents and breeding them as part of a science experiment, so your questions may have been a bit off putting to the rat and mice people on the forum. Just saying.
