Science Mice need a home!
« on: November 12, 2012, 05:35:52 PM »
K so here's the story.
 I am doing a science experiment with mice, which wont harm them. And i need a place to send them after the experiment because my parents wont let me keep them.
 
 So if anybody is interested, id like to send them to a nice loving home! Preferably not to a home with any snakes  :-\

Just let me know if you are interested and we'll exchange details then.

I'm in Lexington, KY and may be able to assist with transport if a mice train needs to be set up. :3 Wish I could take some mice (always wanted some) but with the ferrets already a little too interested in the rats...might be a bad idea.

Males or females?

I've got a 30L tank that has a very, very tight fitting lid that could have some meece :)  But I'm in Nebraska, so I'm a long way off.

OK so that is pretty far. im not sure how all that transporty stuff works with animals, being that i am 15 SO i may be willing to TRY to get them to you, however id probably need help. Also we are unsure what gender they will be. But they will either be all female, or all male.

You will want to do females, males cannot tolerate one another, and will fight to the death if they aren't neutered.

Good to know. The lady at the pet store was a little ditsy. She couldnt tell if a puppy was a boy or a girl. But she was nice so that counts. The mice were young so im wondering if itll be hard to tell?? I havent gotten them yet, because i need to find a home for them first.

Print them out and take them with you when you get the mice so you can be sure you're getting females. Females also smell less, in my experience. And should be easier to adopt out.

We made sure they were all female. We have 3 white mice and a brown one and a black one. But they really do need a home

Just curious:  Why are you doing a science experiment on them and what exactly are you doing?
