Breeding feeder mice?

I have 4 female mice and one male. they have all been housed together for the past week. Now iv noticed that one female is VERY pregnant and I'm having a hard time telling the male from the female. I think I separated him from them as the genitals are lower then the others and there was something sticking out i thought it could possibly be his penis? I'm all new to breeding mice.

as well I had him with the 4 for little over a week will all 4 be pregnant?

    Odds are you will have at least 2 pregnant. But the female mice need to be there gestation period. Putting a male mouse with a female mouse that is not on there gestation period is pointless. Make sure you have separated the already female mouse from the others. because the other mice will eat the babies. Here is a link to telling the gender apart:

    Mice choose a warmth source in order to shop their body temp regulated. in case you'll strengthen them in the basement use an section heater on the threshold of their en closer. they do no longer require any particular interest in basic terms shop the temp above freezing and they are going to carry you each and every of the feeders you opt for. if you're elevating them in avery chilly climate in basic terms make efficient you position an excellent type of clutter in the enclosure; timber shavings, newspaper, they don't care.
