    Hi is this possible? I have the offer of adopting 2 x 11 week old and 1 6 month old who are already in a group. I am not really keep on saying yes if I will end up with another cage of mice...particularly who may end up being split into more cages. But if it is a group...is the liklihood of them getting on more? Or could it affect the balance of the original group and split them up? xx

    Its highly likely that adding another male could end badly with him being attacked and could also start your existing group fighting, I certainly wouldnt try it hun, maybe someone else will be along with better news but I certainly wouldnt risk it.

    I texted YR too..and yes he agrees!! 3 out of 4 of them were quite young which is why I was tempted...but as he said the 6 month old one won't accept him. I had to turn the boys down but I have taken 3 little girls in. We think one is mum as she is bigger...but they are all gorgeous...which id not counted on! Mum is white and beige...and other two girls are white!!! Totally beautiful!!! xx
