    About:
    I run a small mousery in Missouri called Windy Hill Mousery. Ive been breeding mice for several years now. People are always shocked at the colors & markings mice can come in.


    This is just to show what colors, markings & fur mice come in besides what you see at petstores.

    Very cool! I have never seen some of those colors. It is nice to see someone raise mice for pets and not snake food.[​IMG]

    I used to have mice as pets when I lived at home (with my parents). I had a few of these different colourings.

    My parents bribed me to get rid of them with a kitten. The two initial mice turned out to be a boy and a girl instead of two girls. Mice breed VERY fast [​IMG] haha

    They are really good pets though! [​IMG]
