Sorry but I do not know where you are from but in Malaysia, I'm not aware of any pre-killed feeders except for frogs or worms.

What you can do it is buy live stock, kill them yourself and toss them in first to see if they are taken. After that, you can experiment with perhaps freezing and then try feeding your snake with the thawed food item.

I have fed my snake pre-killed but it was taken after a long period ignoring it. That proves it could be done. However, I have not tried freezing them yet because the missus would absolutely go nuts having a dead mouse sharing the freezer with the other foods(hehehe).

Be warned, however, that killing the mice isn't for the sqeamish and, personally, I don't enjoy that either. So what I mostly do is to toss them in live. Good luck and do keep in touch. We can't have enough local herpers in this forum.
