They will tend to grow faster/bigger if you leave them with her for a while - but since mice have a litter about every 21 days in the wild, they could be on their own after this point with no damage done. If you breed her with an albino you'll probably get some albinos and some hets. Since so many mice at the pet store are albino hets,even breeding her to a random male from there (who is probably het) will give you some albinos and some hets as well. Have fun! We produced a hairless in one of our last litters...genetics is a kick.
:another question... this one about genetics.. the mother is kind of a gold color...she was pregnant when i got her so i dont know what the father was. she gave me some brown mice and some albino (white with pink eyes) mice.. this means she is het for albino, right? and if i breed her to an albino male, i should get albinos and het albinos... right? dave
