Oh Ann, how are you getting the mice to the show?

Maybe I can enter some of the mice I pick up from you, and I'll send you the ribbons if someone wins something. Happy

Yay! We have TWENTY THREE awards to give out, so even if you enter a pet store mouse, it can't hurt! You're not that un-likely to get a ribbon. Big smile

Rhasputin, you'll be picking the mice up from me in March. The mice I'm entering in the show will all be adopted at RF. Gee, I need to write to Gypsy and KAW and Beth and ask if I can enter Don and Squeakers and Thurl in the show.

KAW, you can enter some of the mice I'm sending up for you! I can't say they'll win anything, but you can use them to boost the number of entries. Happy

How old do entered mice have to be? I may enter a baby from my pet store mom's litter to help boost numbers as well.

You can entered mice as young as 4 weeks. They will be entered as kittens. Happy

Dogs are welcome as long as they are behaved! Wink

I might just bring blue bell to show her off. She's never going to win a show in a million years but I do love the old fart. I had a bunch I was going to bring in but, meh.

Maybe the award for best marshmellow in disguise. Blue is the mouse that started it all, lol. Much improvement since she was a little baby herself.
It's something to look forward to at least.

Do we have a rough idea how many mice will be shown this time?
Seems like, from the interest that there may be quite a few.
So exciting.

Hey I plan on entering atleast one mouse maybe three. I will register at the show. I have no clue what I am doing. Do you put them in a special container??? Do you give them a bath??? Do I need to label anything???? What is the proper code of conduct in entering a mouse???

You can bring your mice in whatever container you'd like, please don't bathe them! tongue

We will have containers for the mice to be shown in, at the judge's table. If you need help registering, we can do that too! Happy

Pardon my ignorance since I have never been to a show....but do you mean you will be using containers placed before the judges for multible mice? By which I mean, you will be using the same container for each class...like they will be filled with silvers...then brokens...then blacktans? This sounds like bad quarentine practices. Maybe I am missing what you are saying. Sorry.
And I am perhaps being overly paranoid....but it just seems like placing a mouse in a cage right after another mouse from a different breeder was in it, seems risky.

Ideally there will be enough for each container to only be visited by a single mouse. But I do not know the total number of entries at this time.

Though by the time you are in the show, each individual breeder should have equally safe and healthy mice. And once they all enter the building, quarantine is over, they're all in the same air space. I think there's a lot of QT fear mongering going around, and it's making everyone way too paranoid.
Just thoughts.

Thanks, I asked about bathing because we bathed some of the guinea pig types before at show. Also I read about in England mice are bathed and have special made exhibit containers to be shown in.

Mice are not bathed in England, I assure you! It's actually very bad to bathe mice, and can even kill them, because they get very chilled, and have no good ways to heat back up. tongue

Most clubs (if not all) also prohibit grooming of most kinds, so that a mouse natural when it hits the judging table. Happy

Oops, Sorry about that. I thought that is what I read. Darn those glasses. Glad to hear that. I would not know what speed to put my hairdryer on. Laughing
