I have some tips, when I was breeding and you take the males away from the females they get extremely angry most of the time. So just be careful with handling and such because they may turn nippy. Best of luck.

Hmm ok, I'll check my pet store next time I'm there and see what they have.

So something unrelated... that was gross.... Missy, my new mother, I saw her eating something, so I was like "ok, what's she nibbling on" I look, it's like wet... I was like "wtf... ew no really....". She finishes it off, then grabs another piece of poop FROM HER bum, eats that, and does that several more times....

Is that normal?

Update on Toby: he's sneezing less and less, and it usually just seems to be in the morning. No more wheezing either. Actually... come to think of it, it seem like wheezing so much as it sounded more like he had snot stuck in his nose and when he breathed, it just flopped around.

Yes, a mouse eating her poop is normal shes just lacking something in her diet and is I guess finding it in her poop.

That's normal for all rodents. Hamsters do it, rats do it, mice do it, rabbits do it, guinea pigs do it... it's giving their bodies a second pass at nutrients. It's completely healthy.
