Default Help me, I'm worried!

My babies are around 6 weeks old now, they are all male and today I noticed one of them making weird high pitched noises. When I checked it out he was trying to breed (?? i'm not sure but he was trying to mount her from behind).
I took mom away for now and put her in another bin. Was this the right thing to do? I'm not sure if the babies still need their mom or anything.

Yes, males can mate at 6 weeks old and should be separated from mom. Hopefully they have been snacking on moms food by now and they should be able to eat kibble on their own. Another thing to know is that the males will all have to separated soon as they are territorial. Just track their food intake and make sure they are still gaining weight and you should be fine.
