hi all, is it normal for a new mouse to barely touch her food and hide? is that part of the settling in process?

This is normal. How long has she been home? I would give her a few days to a week to adjust, and then start working with her. I’ll post a link with tips.

Mice also tend to be active at night when the light are out, so that’s probably when she’s eating. You could drop something super yummy like a Cheerio in and see if it’s gone when you check back.
