He is pretty mobile, as you can see.

Hope they get a growth burst soon! They should have their eyes open by now. Very cute though

Nope. Not sure why they are developing so slowly, I am guessing it was the stress of being shipped and all that. I have been feeding them a ridiculous variety of things, diet shouldn't be the issue. I have no idea what kind of care the mother was providing early on, or even how many of the babies have survived, since they are hidden in their straw tunnels
Wow, they really do look younger than three weeks! Do these guys develop more slowly than fancy mice?
They're due to have their cage cleaned this week, I'll see how many babies I can locate then.

They're uber cute nonetheless

That is kinda what I was thinking. I have been giving them high quality dog and cat food, meal worms, crickets, dried silk worms, etc, so they should be good on protein
Perhaps the moms aren't feeding them as much as they should since they've been moved.

ETA: I just realized that it's also possible this one is from a newer batch, I really have no idea what's going on under the bedding, hah.
