Steve, a mouse usually stays within about a 30 foot distance from where he/she is born. If food gets slim (that's probably never...) they will fan out, and/or if the population increases. It's RATS that are social, mice are the opposite.
FROM THE MOUSE PAGE:
"Normally, a female mouse will begin breeding at 40-45 days old, they have a gestation period as short as 18 days, with a litter size of 5-8 pups. And they do this all year 'round. So it's easy to see, very soon, you could be up to your ears in mice, if the conditions are just right."
BTW, years ago, my daughter's pet white mouse had 11 babies...
And thanks for the compliments!
