hey guys, I tried giving my cali king, who is in shed blue eyes and grey colours), a fuzzy, as I was told that if a snake wants to feed during shed, feed it, but it didn't want to feed, is it okay to refreeze the mice and use them again, or not?

Not as a rule once thawed they shouldn't be refrozen this leads to loss of nutrients and as far as I know isn't good for snake either

I wouldnt eat refrozen food, so i wouldnt expect my snakes to, its not worth the risk for only a couple of quid.

Get a cool bag/box and a couple of ice packs. I use a polystyrene cool box with ice packs and mice stay frozen in there all day, even in summer. Put the mice in a carrier bag with ice packs either side of them, and fill any spare space in the box/bag with screwed up newpaper/more carrier bags for extra insulation.
