 My mouse had babies!

i am breeding feeder mice, and i have a female that had a lot of babies, she wasnt cleaning them or anything, she was just killing them and leaving them. i gave like 3 of the babies to one of my other moms that has milk but no babies, and she is taking care of them and they are doing great, but does anyone know why the mom was killing them and not taking care of them?

She was a crack head mom?? ... she needs to be put down...Some females are just bad moms...I will not allow cannibalism in my colony...good that you had a surrogate mom.

They may have been slightly unhealthy or she may have been stressed
out about have too big a litter???
I had something like this happen to me earlier and some mice are just not put up to being mommy’s.
I agree with Chpill on this one, kill her, freeze her, let her go, sell her...Etc...
Just don’t keep mice like that you will just keep having bum litters.
