Hi! This is my first post, I have just joined
Anyways, I have 2 female mice (Sooty & Snowflake) and a few weeks ago we decided to buy a male to mate with them. Currently we know one is pregnant and we're pretty sure the other is, still waiting for a bulge.
I have 2 questions:
1. Does the baby bulge normally spring up overnight? O_o last night Sooty looked relatively normal. This morning she's freaking humongous! I was like O_O what a difference a few hours made! lol!
2. Since the babies will be here soon, I was wondering if its okay to leave both females in the cage together? Assuming Snowflake is also pregnant, just not as far along, is it okay for them to give birth around the same time and have 2 litters in one cage? will they fight or help each other care for the babies?
YAY! I'm so excited!! I don't have time to post pics as I am about to start getting dressed for work, but if you want to see pics of my mice, visit the link on my profile that goes to my myspace page.
Snowflake is a white feeder with pink ears/tail & red eyes. Sooty is a dark grey feeder with pink ears/tail and black eyes. (we felt bad and wanted to rescue the feeders from certain death!) Woody, the male, came from PetSmart and he is a stripey brindle color with black, orange, and tan. I can't wait to see the babies!!
