the blues are a little pricey for snake food. they go for $12 each compared to about 1-2 dollars for a normal rat.

I want one I want to get some rats where I can breed them I want some hariless some blues some dumbos some albinoes where I can breed them for like super rats I can keep as pets or sale to my local pet store. And if I get ones That I don't like I simply feed them to my snakes. Does that sound cold hearted?

Um you may be asking the wrong group of people here about that CyberGhost. I do that I keep my favorites as breeders and the ones that tick me off I feed off. I have no use for animals that tick me off... well scratch that I do have a use for them
My male who happens to be a blue as well will probably never end up being food since I and my daughter (mostly my daughter) have gotten attached to him.

What the heck is a super rat anyway?

A super rat is just my expression like I would breed the rats until I got the perfect one like a dumbo blue hairless that would be a super rat though I think thats impossible. But everybodies idea of the perfect rat is diffrient so it all depends. I know you feed most of them and only keep the ones you want but could't you sale some of the ones that ticked you off instead of using them as feed? Just a thought. I guess I will have to find someone else to sell me some rats.

P.S how do you write sale/sell is it sell or sale? I just noticed these two words sound alike and that I use them both for the same meaning, which ones right/write? wink wink

Yah, it helped, if those go to the pet store will you ever be selling some because I would love to buy them and theres no place around here to but them. PLz, if your going to start breding you should be able to get anothe litter ready for sale in 9-12 weeks. I want them as pets just so you know not as food.

shipping live rats isn't cost effective. not too many people are interested in paying 100 dollars for shipping a 12 dollar rat. As for going across the border there is also dealing with the USFWS. To LEGALY ship anything into or out of the united states you must go through that department, otherwise you are smuggling, even if you declare it to customs. Usually there's a $55 inspection fee. So you can see that shipping from up here down to Texas isn't likely to happen.
