Mice just had babies. A little advice please?
Hello everyone. I'm in a bit of a situation here >_>. So I bought two mice from a petco about a month or so ago, thinking they were both female (that's what the sign said, but their incompetence knows no bounds.) Well about a week after I noticed that one of the mice had become noticeably plumper. Apparently one of the mice was a male...now they have a group of small pink babies(at least 5, but most likely a couple more). I didnt know they were there until I went to clean out their cage. When I moved their hidey house there were a whole bunch of babies under it. I didn't disturb their nest since I knew with most animals they might stop taking care of the babies or kill them if they get the scent of someone on them. Anyway I need some advice on what to do. The babies are about 2-3 days old since they are still apparently blind. I need to know when I should separate the parents, when I can actually move the babies to a different location since their current one is in a cage that has wiring too far spaced apart, and basically all information about taking care of the mice. Thank you in advance for all your information =). Also what should I do with the babies? I am not going to give them back to petco, so i need another option.
