We have a variety of fancy mice available for sale at £5.00 each or £9.00 for a pair.
At Wheelgate Park we will only sell mice in pairs unless you already have mice at home.
All animals come with a small amount of feed that they are given here at the park, if you wish to change their diet please do this over a period of a week to stop them getting upset tummies!
We have all sorts of mice, in different colours and patterns! If you are looking for anything particular then contact one of our Farm Rangers and they will be more than happy to help you out!
Keeping mice as pets
Mice are very easy to keep and are a common first pet for many people. They are very social little animals and love to come out and be played with. Some mice are very intelligent and you can even train them to do mini assult courses!!
Mice should never be kept on their own as they are very social amongst their own kind and love to have company! They need to be kept in a suitable cage, if you are using a cage with bars then make sure the bars a very close together, normal hamster cage bars are usually quite far apart and mice can squeeze through. For two mice a suitable cage size would be 2ft by at least 1 1/2ft wide, with lots of platforms and toys inside for them to play on.
Mice can be given any form of specially formulated small animal feed, however there is nothing better than making your own up! To do this all you need are a few different ingredients – wild bird seed, rolled barley, whole oats, pidgeon mix, parrot mix, maize, flaked peas and a small amount of general small animal mix, mix this all up and there you have it! Your own feed for your mice!
Mice usually live to around 2 years of age, unfortunately this isnt a long time, however in their two years of life they will give you so much fun and excitement!
If you have any more questions about keeping mice then just come and see us, or call us!
