:How old is a rat when she stops being a productive breeder?
:Mouse?

It'll depend on genetics and diet and whether you are breeding back to back etc but largely I breed mice for 4-6 months and rats for a 6-9 months. But that is just an average. I have had some that reproduce great up to 6-8 months for mice and a year for rats.
