    Yeah my mouse had her babies! All 14 of them! I knew she would have a lot because the poor thing was just huge. They are doing fine. Can't tell the colors yet. Mom is reddish brown dad was solid white.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Congrats!
    Is the mom the color of a wild mouse? (cant really tell in the pic)
    Was the dad solid white with red/pink eyes?

    Ive had does get HUGE and only have 3 babies and then Ive had some that didnt show and had 16 babies, you just cant ever tell.

    By day 3 you can start handling the babies and can start to see the colors & markings of them.
