Going to have to breed rats soon, for food, as prices are abit steep for postage and rat price...
Once the rats have had "sex" how long will it take before the young are born?
Also anyone who does this can you tell me how you kill the rats, mice etc?

3 weeks and you can just give em the big swing against the sink/bath, whack em with a screwdriver, or gas em. Enjoy.

for 5 snakes it would still work out my economical, to buy food, as you have to buy,house, feed the breeding rats, then you have to split the rat weaners into two separate cages then feed them up to appropriate size.

I use a CO2 welding canister with a regulator, a tall plastic tub and some paper towel/bedding at the bottom of the tub.
