ok, heres the story...
i recently went to a place that sells tons if frozen mice... a lot of you will use it too.
Basically, i have feed my snakes two weeks in a row and had more regurges each week than in 15 years of feeding in total..
SOOOO, if anyone wants about 200 fluffs and 200 pinks for nothing.. then take them, they are yours... its your risk, but they may be ok for someone.. or a bosc?? i dunno, just ideas.
Anyway, i will be ringing up the supplier and moaning as it HAS to be the mice being a bit dodgy, its not the usual place i go (simons rodents) so that counts him out.
I wont name and shame on here as i dont wanna get sued, so i'll ignore any comments whether they are right or wrong..
Anyway, 1st come 1st served, or they go in the bin..

Baby, amel with tiny tiny tail bump...

i have a stunning amel corn for sale, 3 months or so, eating 2 pinks per week and sheding perfectly.
She has a tiny bump on her tail which you can feel but not really see..
anyway, she can go as a pet for £10, you may want to try and breed her when old enough, but would prefer she went as a pet...

I have had this happen before with some mice i got from a large internet supplier,it sucks but all you can do is throw them.
I hope that amel is better behaved than mine!

Thats one of the reasons I like to breed my own, Not only do I know what they have been fed and how they have been kept (big piece of mind for me) but I also know how fresh they are or how long they have bee frozen for. (only ever a week at tops).

I breed show mice so I get my breeding stock from other breeders.
The Pink Eyed Whites and Creams are the 2 biggest strains of show mice. They are sometimes sold to reptile keepers as super mice or super large. They truely are huge, at 6 weeks they are normaly the size of most adult petshop mice.

I breed for colour, type and show quality and don't keep many males unless I need a new stud male so all the rest apart from show stock are surplus.
Just set all my trios and breeding groups back up again after they had a few months break. So will have loads that I could provide as starting colony stock of a larger healthier type.

lol, well i have bred some amazing mice but they are all food to me, so if they were rare (which some were i think) then i missed out lol..


well the thing is bri, they put 'free' ice packs in for the journey... they were frozen when we got back to mine.. i also had a good number of larger mice in there too, so this would have helped the process
