:lol2: right,forgot that...I've got 2 baby feeder mice seperated from their mother and I bought them from a petshop for my leos but I couldn't bring myself to it.It's 6am now and I bought them yesterday at 2pm,they are still alive...any chance they would live?

**EDIT**
it is now 6pm so they've made it through a day and 4 hours.The bigger one(3 inches) has nibbled some dog food so I think they have teeth now,however their eyes are still closed.The smaller one on the other hand hasn't eaten anything yet,both of them refuse to drink water...I've tried many times.Any ideas what they can eat?(Can they eat yogurt?)

Girth

Can anyone post a link to a girth chart for these suckers? Length and weight don't really do much to guide the feeding process here. . .

I can do some girth measurements on what i have in at my house atm.

Rat fluffs
Rat Weaners
Small Mice
Large Mice

If that helps?

haha sorry mate!! i actually kinda forgot! i missed the feeding night as i was too tired to wait for some rodents to defrost so went straight to bed when i got back from getting the new snakes, it's like 1am nearly, but i'll go get you some sizes now lol. Sorry for forgetting!

EDIT: right, back from the big outside freezer, with a few measurements.

I had no fluff rats left, as i fed the last two on thursday.

I also found some mouse pinkies, so added them on here too.

Pinkie Mouse - 1cm at the widest point of the mouse, and 3cm long.

Small Mouse - 2cm at the widest point of the mouse, and 7cm long (excluding tail)

Large Mouse - 2.5cm at the widest point of the mouse, and 10cm long (excluding tail)

Weaner rat - 3cm at the widest point of the mouse, and 12cm long (excluding tail)

Sorry it's not a lot, but this is all i have in atm, will try get some more sizes when i can and add them on here for you if you so wish.

Hope it helps.

hi would you please be kind enough, if its not to much trouble, to put on the price as to what they go at if you was selling them to pet stores?
I'm considering starting up my own feeder rat/mice business and already have some female breeders just not sure as what price to sell them at as they all vary.
very informative chart by the way!
