    I know most people don't like them but I always enjoyed raising them. The satins are so pretty.My problem was finding homes for them! I even turned some loose in my barn! I had the prettiest wild mice for a long time!They really are fun to watch are very entertaning. Please keep posting pics.

    Thanks [​IMG]
    I hope to add satin to more of my lines.
    I cull my litters down to a smaller amount, so I have less to find homes for. I mainly cull the males since they are the hardest to find homes for.
    PLus its easier on the moms to raise smaller litters.
