    Sell some to the pet stores if you don't want them all.

    If there is a male mouse or any other mouse in the cage besides the mother and babies seperate them. Try not to touch/handle the babies. Make sure there is enough bedding (woodchips, cotton, or even news paper in the cage). Once the mother lays near them the babies will feed and nature will take its course. I'de suggest not giving them away for 3-4 weeks or until you see them eating the normal food that you give your mice. Once they are old enough to eat you can sell some or give them away to a pet shop or any other place that takes unwanted pets. Hope this helps.

    Put an an add in the newspaper and sell each little baby mouse for 15$ if you dont want to keep them. If you want to keep them I suggest seperating them into 3 small small cages but not too small. make sure you put cotton balls in the small cage so it makes it easier also they do not liked to be picked up at first so give them some time.

    sing happy birthday! j/k i think you should observe them, make sure they are in a warm room of your place and make sure the mom is taking care of them. if you dont want them all you could call a local pet store to ask whether they could buy them or even take them off your hands for you (there they would likely be snake food) so its up to you and your parents if you are a minor.

    Take the babys to the pet shop they will gladly take them off your hands... or you can sell them to snake owners if you like

    Hi Bryce, That is a lot of mouses.Try and see if any of your friends would like to take a couple of the mices' of your hands. If you don't have any luck that way. Sell them to a science lap.

    Well for know, the mother has to take care of them. But I would ask pet stores if they would be interested in buying them when they are ready.

  • Wrap the babies in a wash cloth, let the mom lick them and call a vet. Wait a month before you give them away, so they can get breast fed.
