"I just wanted to say from my experience I have raised hundreds of litters of mice. To the person who said the pinkies will be eaten if you touch them, the pinkies are ate often times if a lot of inbreeding has happened, also if something is wrong with them, we cant see it , but the mother knows if they are not right, that my seem cruel and disgusting but ALL animals naturally know if something is not right with their baby. Some will abandon them, some will kill them, and for some reason some will eat then(in my openion they eat them because they cant abandon them since they are confined to a cage, and if they kill them, they need to dispose of them) mice however are ones who chose, to kill and eat them. Squirrels for example will throw the babies out of the nest. Mice are also often times extremely inbreed, which of course can cause all sorts of problems. Males in my expereince, will sometimes, although not always eat the babies, and of course overcrowding in a cage will cause them to eat each others babies. I have had some males that are as much a part of the babies as the mother, and other males who would rather eat them. If your mouse eats the babies i suggest you quit trying to breed that mouse, or take in to consideration your housing. Outside of doing a head count daily there is no reason to handle the babies the first several days-even up to a week-which you dont neccesarily need to handle them to count them. They are very delicate, and even as careful as you can be you can damage them. Maybe that is a reason the mother eats them only after you touch them. if you have noticed when you handle them, all organs are vary noticable through the skin, and can be damaged vary easily."
