What do you call a group of mice?

I usually say colony, though I've also seen nest, trip, family, horde, or mischief (though I think that one's really a group of rats?) used.

I call them a colony or a group. Or a trio if there's only three. Razz

The cutest one I've heard of is a Giggle of Mice. I forget where I heard that...but I thought it was cute!

That is cute!  I tried looking it up to see where it was used but ended up reading a bunch of articles on laughing rats. Laughing I get distracted easily. Laughing

I say meece often, instead of mice.  I know there's a member here that says meople.  I was just curious what the more common group name was. Ya know, like a murder of crows or a gaggle of geese. I don't think anyone says a meece of mice??  Razz

I use colony! Though I think mischief is super cute too even if it's usually used for ratties
