Is it time to seperate?

ok so the babies are now eating some solid foods. but they are also still milk feeding. As long as they are eating solids can i separate them now or do i need to wait longer its only been like 3 and a half or so weeks my calendar it marked to separate on the 11th so it isn't that far off.

It is best to wait until they are closer to 5 weeks. It is normal for babies to start eating solid foods at about 3 weeks of age, but they are still too immature to leave their mother. During the next two weeks until they turn 5 weeks old, they will continue to nurse, but will also learn from their mother what foods are good to eat, how to use a water bottle, and rattie manners they can't learn on their own.

Oh mice might be different then! I'm only familiar with rats and made an assumption that's what these were. Oops!

Yeah,thats okay.
She has other posts about them.
But mice are generally the same as rats when it comes to weaning/seperating and that.
