I had no idea that you were a breeder, And i am surprised to hear that you are and kept male mice together because i think it is quite common for them to fight like that.
And yes, a lot of times people come to the forum with no idea what is going on and think that they do date and need girlfriends.
Honestly, I'm pretty surprised that you're pretty shocked that I keep males together! I do admit most
of the males kept together have obviously been raised together, either father and son or brothers, but I have definately succesfully introduced many males who were not together originally, and everything worked out fine. NOTHING like what has happened here, or else I wouldn't have even joined this forum to find out if anyone else has encountered it. [Not saying there is anything wrong with the forum, I'll stick around, I've just never seen it before. lol]
Now as for me replying to you the first time, at first I was just hurt [a little e-hurt..lol] that you were putting me down about it.
I'm a very active member on a different forum [It's a parenting forum, not exactly the same but close!
] and I definately know the type of people that come on thinking really weird things, it gets old, you want to reach out and slap them.
So.... I bet it happens here a lot, and I'm sorry for not explaining myself better.
LASTLY, as for the mice....
They are doing awesome! Thorne, who is the one that wasn't as badly injured, is doing much better, his wounds are healing nicely. Isaac, the one with the injury with the back legs, is still dragging them a bit, but when I pick him up he can now grip my fingers with his back feet, and moves them more. I think the majority of it was immobility from swelling, and not a more serious spine injury.
Again -- sorry for being rude initially...
