Pardon the wood dust! Here they are at 3 weeks and a day or two. They are little mexican jumping beans! Talk about fleas! Hoppy hop hop!
Looks like I got three merles, three rexes, and 6 fluffy bundles of cute! Dad is a rex, so I was not overly surprised there.
They are absolutely adorable in the tank. This is my first batch of assassin mice. The creep in the bedding and only poke up their little faces. Then we you put your hand in...they all explode with energy! It's hilarious! I think I am missing one black rex doe on these pictures...she hid too well in the bedding and I didn't realise until the pictures were downloaded. Sneaky thing!

I never get tired of looking at these guys. I love my blues, but marked mice are so much more exciting <3

Question,
Merle mice are lovely but does anyone breed pied merles?
I was just wondering if people lean towards or away from that gene combo.

I have one! Well a belted merle anyway most likely. I will probably try to prove the belting by breeding her one day...but she is my favorite mouse right now. She sings! Chirps and warbles like an angel!
I love how that looks...it makes her look like a tricolor in greyscale. Just lovely! Here is my Nightingale

Very pretty! It does make her look sort of like a tricolor. I like how the stark white shows off the roaning better.

Does anyone else think of ice cream when looking at that mouse? o.0 I don't even know what flavour I'm referring to but there's something out there that's beautifully layered with varying colours. : )

I love the look of Pied Merles! I'm trying to get to that point with my Merles. I had 1 Pied Merle baby, but sadly she didn't make it. She got eaten. Sad

Here's a Pied Merle girl I have:




And here's my favorite one, Meribelle, whom I lost(*cry*):




Candycorn, your Pied Merle is gorgeous! I love how defined her markings are! Some day I will breed a litter of Tri-Color Merles just for the fun of it. Some day... Maybe even throw some Tan in the mix for an extra umph, lol!

Love2read, you have such beautiful mice! Yes, I want to go on record as loving pied merles! I visited compassgirl several years ago and saw a blue pied merle she'd bred. It was like looking at a natural phenomenon! I started.
