In Reply to: Re: new rodent breeding idea, whattya think? posted by boissonnault on April 20, 2003 at 11:44:06:


the mice solution sounds fine but you don't say if your breeding for pinkies or full size feeders if just pinks then you won't need room to finish them off so all you have to do is freeze them in a day or two depending on what size you need , pinks double in size every other day as far as a co2 chamber goes i freeze my pinks and i can't see that it's less humane then suffication it takes justs minutes then for older mice you can break their necks and they never feel a thing, i know it sounds cruel but it's part of the business of herps and rodents
:well good luck and don't sweat the little things, i just started breeding and once you get them started you can't hardly slow them down,just realize you might lose the first litters when the 1st female is ready to pop just feed and water and then leave her alone with a box to hide in and hope she don't kill them. i lost two 1st litters but none since and now all the moms help each other in the colony.have fun and keep us posted
