Extra small frozen pinkies are usually one day old and range in size from 0.5 to 1.0 inch in length not including the tail. They weight approximately 1.5 to 1.99 grams. They are called “pinkies” because of their color, as they have not yet formed their hair coat. They are considered neonatal.
Small pinkies are also pink in color without their hair coats and are approximately one to two days old. They are also 0.5 to 1.0 inch in length, but are heavier (approximately 2.0 to 2.49 grams) in weight. They are also classified as neonatal.
Large pinkies are about the same length in size (0.5 to 1.0 inches) and weigh 2.5 to 2.99 grams each. They are still hairless and pink and are three to four days old.
Peach fuzzies are available in white and dark and are usually five to nine days of age and will be approximately 1.0 to 1.25 inches in length and weigh 3.0 to 4.49 grams.
Fuzzies have developed a full coat of hair at this point and are 10 to 13 days of age. They are slightly larger at 1.25 to 1.50 inches and approximately 4.50 to 6.99 grams in weight.
3. Adult Feeder mice:
Many sizes and weights ranging from 7.0 to 45+ grams in weight and up to body lengths of 3.45 inches.
Packaging Can Have a Big Impact on the Condition They Will Arrive
