his some nice pics of my new mice oh , an mother
Very cute mice.
They are soooooo cute.
They are lovely, my daughter has just adopted 3 black huge one's they are male's and cute but they bloomin stink !!
yes the male smells a little so i clen him out more , but i dont think ill get rid of his smell as its musck to attract females?? but ive kept another male but he s only young so ill not breed with him till @ least another 4 weeks he donest smell that bad . wait till i put them both togher what apong then:eek6: but there lovely i can put up with smell
I find the smell is contained to the male's tank/cage, I almost never smell it anymore from mine.
what colour are the ones in the middle picture, never seen any like that before, how cute,xxx
there are a redish brown colour it my be flash on camera but ill look out for those ones as ive 22 little mices to love an rehome , ppl like certain colours , but yes there a lovely colour. infact alll my mices are beautiful
ive 2 males but when i breed i keep male in to help with the work, then pass him about other cages to other females ect yes it smalls abit but like i said its confined to males , an i tend to clean them more
Males do produce musk, but on average I find they can be even more friendly then females which completely makes up for it. Plus I don't even smell it anymore.
yes i agre with you about males as i find mine very very friendly but females are more shy, i wonder why
I only have females and they are really friendly, they are handled a lot though and they were very young when I got them, the two pet mice are actually a bit more cuddly than the fancy mice but even the fancy mice are cuddly. The females are not the sweetest smelling creatures either .
I have completely blocked out the actual odor of both males and females, but then I've had them a long time and have a large number so it was enevitable I guess.
I've got both and my girls come running up to the top of the tank and squeak while they wait on the lid being taken off. Then I can't keep them off so I don't have a problem with shyness! As for my boys, Chp comes running if I tap my fingers and Mintola justs wants to be the mouse version of Houdini. Kissifur is a little more cuddly but is only just starting to get that way - he is a very shy nervous mouse. And they reek!! All of them!! I can clean a cage out and 5 minutes later they have managed to make it smell again!!
