Pregnant Mice

I have 4 female fancy mice which are all due within the next 3 weeks. One anyday now. Can I house all these females together before and after birth? I got another container in case they need to be separated.

yes all females will be able to live together but you will need a huge cage as mice can have alot of babies and remember to seperate males at 4 to 5 weeks as u'll have more mice than you can handle

Yes...I agree.The females can stay together and they will all take part in looking after ALL of the babies.However you need a large cage and then of course a bunch of other cages to seperate the males from females at about 5 weeks!
