Try the feeder section for humane killing methods; there's info there. And the equipment classifieds for breeding cages.

babies you can give a quick flick on the back of the head. anything bigger you can gas them with CO2 - seems like a lot of work building one. Think the method I will be using - hold them just behind the back of their head, and then pull firmly from the base of the tail. It disconnects the spine. seen this done and they are dead instantly.
