:sometimes the femlaes attack the male? they bite just the base of the tail. this usually happens at the start of the formation of the colony. the mice are usually medium size so they grow together. the procution 9is usually low in these colonies. any ideas?

I don't know their motives but I know that it is often when setting up a colony with girls pregnant by another male, and or that have newborns. Protecting their babies maybe. I found the best solution to these 'amazon' colonies is to raise one of their own male pups or give them a barely weaned male to raise into the colony. Otherwise they are very likely to eunuch them and kill them.
