    Ok, with any luck I have found some female mice:D:D:D

    Whats a good number to intro her too? She is in a Duna fun just now but I could get another cage if needed in a few weeks, I was planning to get her a Kios as well since the boys all have them now, plus i have 2 Duna minis spare that i could attempt to rig up something to join the cages together:confused:

    A trio always does well, that means when one passes on the other has a friend and just an all round good number as if one doesn't want to play then the other might so works well.

    I think the Duna Fun itself might be a bit small but attached to the other Duna(s) then it should work fine and give them different rooms to explore:)

    Yup the fun is way to small for more than one IMO, I was hoping to use a duna mini as a intro cage as if they are small they have no chance of escaping;) then possibly pick up a 4th Kios ( shhhh doint tell my husband;)) and then attach the fun to it since they both have tube holes which would give them floor space and climbing:)
    So should I look to get a pair of girls then or a trio so I end up with 4? I dont think Lily will be difficult to intro, shes a good little girl :)

    I won't tell:p

    Nothings better than a new cage! I think the Kios and the Duna Fun will be a good cage together for them. To make a trio get 2 girls but you could always get 3 and make it up to 4 if you wanted.

    Just need to work out if 4 would have enough space in the 2 cages together lol I will most likely end up with mice everywhere:laugh:

    I only started with 4, ended up with 11 at one point:yikes:

    They are great pets though so it wasn't my fault they all just needed to be here with me!

    Well, got the 3 boys and lily at the moment, thinking about finding some multis for the boys:), if I get another 3 friends for Lily that brings me to 7, so I might need to round that up a little:laugh:

    Ok, found someone selling females, they have 4:eek: I really only wanted 2 or 3, but I dont want to leave one girl alone if I took 3 and I would worry about the 2 I left behind being split up and they asked if I would take all 4:eek:

    So, me being me I have said yes I will take all 4:rolleyes: So, should I split them into a trio and a pair?, keep all 5 together? They would have to live in the Duna fun for a week or 2 till I buy a Kios and then I planned to connect the Kios to the fun so they had quite a bit of room or will that not be enough space for 5?

    That's great! You could keep all 5 together as they okay in bigger groups too:)

    I don't know about the Duna Fun but i can't see why not if it's only temporary plus i'm sure Lily would enjoy the girls better than any toy you can get so why not.

    Keeping altogether should be fine, and the duna fun would be ideal for a week while Lily gets used to her new friends :) Can't wait to see them :D :D
