5 or 6 weeks is fine . Be sure not leave the female babies with the father too long or he might get them pregnant.

i want to keep the babies, i might end up keeping the females, i havent sexed them properly yet but i think there may only be one boy which means i'll have to keep him with dad, but i cant keep all of them. so i either have to rehome dad and son or one boy and girl baby, i just dont know what to do. i have to find them a nice home, but my landlord wont let me have anymore animals, so i cant keep them all!! doh!!
but i agree, they are the sweetest things which makes the decision so much harder!!
