maybe the rats are much more expensive because its 'organic' meat...they're brought up on natural and nutritious food to make them 'feeder' worthy, a organic chicken or any other type of free range, organic meat for human consumption is alot more expensive then the regular meat. Have you done a comparison to the prices on organic poultry? I think it may narrow the price gap. Although rats will produce faster than chickens regardless of food quality (and should be cheaper) I think when it comes to our pets we'll always be paying out the wazzoo!
