One of the best reasons to feed f/t is cost. I've found f/t rats are way cheaper then live ones. Now in the case of when you breed them i find you end up with many at the right size at the same time. they won't stay that size forever, and the only way to keep them that size is freeze them. there's many methods to kill the rats, i find putting a couple rats in a sealable bucket, dropping a couple cubes of dry ice into a cup of water makes pleanty of CO2 gas to put the rats to sleep forever. My observations have been that it's pretty painless for the rats and dry ice is cheap (buck a pound and a couple cubes is no where near a pound). You can get dry ice from companies like Praxair.
