I run my mice 1 male to 4 females. I do not remove the male nor any of the females since cannibalism happens when you add to a colony that already has young. It is extremely inefficient to remove any members of an actively reproducing colony of mice. Mice will eat their young if there are a) any new members added to the colony b) feel stressed out c) first litter d) no food is available. Hope this helped
