>>thanks for your reply. for sure it was not a visitor come to think about the girl that i found dead she was looking a little skinny so maybe she died and the other started to eat her. yuk!!! as far as the other mom that abandoned her babies i fed her to my biggest ball python that was a first for me feeding an adult but he handled her no problem. what kind of dog food do you use? how many breeders do you have and no problems with the dog food? heard bad things about dog food for rats. red dye etc.. thanks again!!

I avoid red dye (dyes of any kind) and tend to go for Dad's or Blue Seal and combine with cat food- one of TSCs right now....same 'no dyes' higher protein and I give it to the mice. Everyone gets sunflower seed, raw scratch seed, stale breakfast cereal....for variety. I don't do this as a job but it supports my hobby. I have 20 groups (1.4-1.7) of mice and 10-12 groups (1.3-1.5) of rats with the corresponding offspring. Usually equates to 100-200 rats and 200-300 mice at any given time. Though lately I have a local keeper raising a bunch of babies and buying $65 of pinks, fuzzys and a couple dozen mice and small rats each week. Nice steady income on top of the pet store buying.
In the 70s I had more mice and it was a good source of pocket money.....of course I only got 10-25 cents each then.
