behaviour in castrated mice

I believe that on your side of the pond male mice are more commonly castrated than here in the UK. I was wondering if anyone would be able to point me in the direction of any info, or share with me their own experince, of castrated male behaviour when introduced to females.

Any replies much appreciated.

I found this site. I couldn't really find anything on them living with females. I know people keep neutered male and female rats together. A lot of the stuff I found was keeping neutered males together.

Thanks for that. As it happens I'm already familiar with that f&q but I appreciate you looking.

I personally don't really know any people around the forums that neuter or spay mice. It can be a dangerous operation especially if the vet doesn't know what they're doing.
