However I believe Hamilton is far too far away for us.

The Green Mile-Rodent Feeders
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
I think breeding your own rats is alot of work, especially if you have a large collection of snakes. It is definately cheaper, but I guess that depends on how much money you save in comparison to how much time you are willing to spend with maintenance. Snake offspring monetary value is also a factor....
I breed my own rodents as well but when I don't have a certain size that I need I go to local pet stores rather than larger national ones. They usually breed their own rodents as well and it is much cheaper.
And when I bought frozen I got them from RodentPro as well
Aidan, ALOT cheaper. it costs me $600 a year for bedding and food for all of my breeders and subsequent feeders while alive. I produce more than 2400 rats a year. Lets say I let my rats grow up to about the size of what a pet store would call a medium rat (150g range). Pet stores sell those rats for $3-5 a pop. That's $7200-$12000 a year for what I produce for $600. As I said, ALOT cheaper.
