:I looked at my mouse cage this morning and found bloody pinkie carcasses strewn about. What things set off cannibalism in mice? This would have been the 1st litter.


First litters are often cannabalized. That said it could be that or that they aren't getting enough protein...I feed some cat kibble for working moms. Could be just some sort of stress otherwise. I would keep her and give her a second chance. If she eats her next litter...feed her off. But I bet she won't.
