Hello all! Me and my five female mice are New here, and New to each other. Sorry of this is a long post!
As a bit of background, about 6 months ago i got two female mice and had no idea what I was doing. Through lots of research i learned more about their needs and for them a much better cage, food, lots of toys and began interacting with them more successfully. However one of them had a heart attack and passed away, leaving the other all alone. Not wanting her to become depressed i decided to rehome her and she went off to a lovely home to be introduced to two female's and now they are all the best of friends.
Well of course I wanted to try again so after about a month of just research I built a two level bin cage out of two 105qt bins and the cage pieces as walls and doors to provide ventilation and climbing. Each level has a hide, a water bottle, and a food bowl as well as toys and chews and wheels and nesting material. Then i did more research on food and got browns carnival mix for hamsters as the protein and fat contents were more what mice needed. Then more research on mice behaviors and needs and I looked for a reliable pet breeder and as I was unsuccessful i ended up getting my females from a pet store.
They came home last night and I have left them alone since putting them in their cage aside from keeping an eye on them. I already named two of them, a Brown and white mottled one I named Harley, and one white with a black head and butt i named Sneak. Three more need names, a white/grey with long fur, and two little black girls who are practically identical haha
Well I hope this wasn't too long, i'm big on details.
