I have come to the conclusion mice are harder than kids.
My Abyssinian Poppy decided to have her babies 4 days early, not a lot you night think but in people terms its two and a half months early.
Not just that....she then decided she didn't like them. Chucking them outta the nest and slamming them up her tanks glass. Somehow I think she should be a bachelorette.
So after being awake for about 42 hours and feeding them every two with the smallest straw I could find, a friend came to the rescue and was able to successfully foster them onto two of her mice. All 6 are doing well!
BRING ON THE Z'S!
