Small rodents can be divided into four life stage groups according to their size and age. These life-stages are pinkies, fuzzies, jumpers or hoppers and adults. The pinkies- or pinks- age group starts at day one to about day seven. They get the name because new-born rodents are pink and hairless. Fuzzies- day seven to about day 21- are in their fuzzy hair stage which lasts until they until they open their eyes. Hoppers or jumpers are about three weeks in age and are weaned offspring. In every life-stage adult males are usually a bit larger than the females. Once in the adult life stage male and female rodents are referred to as buck's and doe's- just like deer.
