    Default Biggest litter yet

    One of my females has been looking like she was gonna pop for a week now, but just seemed to keep getting bigger - Today she had 18 babies, although one was deformed and off to the side - The dad was cleaning it but it was already dead - The surrogate has been helping mom all day with all the mouths to feed...

    What's the biggest litter some of you have received ?

    I think my largest litter of feeder mice was 15 or so. Thats a hell of a pinky factory you got there.

    One of mine had 17 once but it was her first litter and she did not take care of them and they and they all died.

    Surprisingly this was her 1st litter as well - she helped the other roommate mom last time with her litter and vice versa this time, as well as the male helping out - this group seems to work out well...

    Nope - Me and the better half did a recount and both came up with 17 again - I see what you are saying though in the pic - but that head belongs to one of the bodies there - It's hard to count them when they're all bunched up together :wink:

    18 is the biggest litter I have ever had. One of my first 2 female rats I acquired gave me that many in her 3rd litter. I have had any that size since. They are usually around 8 to 10 lately.

    That was a one time deal - She's only been doing around 10 now as well...

    23 from a Swiss Webster. That strain is worth its weight in gold.
