It would improve ventilation and therefore decrease ammonia and scent buildup in the mouse cage; however it will just blow the smell elsewhere lol. And it may be too drafty - mice have a large surface area and can lose heat very quickly in a breeze.
Yes, Brenda. There are a few engineering/design issues to consider with any kind of built-in fan or filter: How would you keep the mouse from sticking its nose into the fan? How would you keep it from pushing bedding into the fan? How would the constant (sonic or ultrasonic) noise affect the mouse, if at all? How would you feasibly implant such a fan into the design of multiple cages while keeping costs (in terms of money, time, and other resources) down? How would the fans be powered? And so forth...
My vote is to accept that mice smell, and devote your time to other things.
