    I'm pretty6 sure male mice don't go together? Correct me if I'm wrong but when I was researching the,m everywhere i went said 'Fmeale mice, fine. Male mice once they;ve reached maturity. No-no.'

    Peace

    When males reach maturity they almost always fight other males, they don't seek the company of other males and as long as they have plenty of time with you and lots to play with they won't be bored.

    I'm glad there wasn't any serious wounding. You supervised carefully and reacted fast, good for you. If you didn't know you couldn't put males together then it's not your fault, live and learn and none of them was badly hurt, thank goodness.

    Yes, they sometimes in the stores they house male mice together, but as others indicated those are young mice and they will almost inevitably start fighting once they are old enough.

    Male mice will sometimes fight to the death. You did the right thing separating them.
