Question I have a Question. I'm New to Breeding Mice.

So I have three female mice that i got from the pet store and they were in a cage with male mice already. do i need to put another male mice with them or should they already be pregnant? would it hurt if i put a male mice in and they are already pregnant?

I'm thinking the second male isn't necessary. Our breeding groups consisted of 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6. If you're going to run a second male give him a separate set of girls.

A safe bet is at least 2 months old although it could happen earlier than that.

Id say trade them all in and get rats. Just teasing, but they are so much nicer and easier to keep, plus they smell much better too.
