I had another rat pinkie a week ago that i also had to kill. I went ahead and CO2'ed that one. I didn't let enough vapor build up before i put him in the jar, so it took longer than it should have. i felt pretty bad about that one. my only problem with the dry ice is that around where i live, the cheapest i can find it for is $3.99 for a normal sized bag (1 lb?). I'm hopefully going to start breeding my own feeders, so i'm trying to look into buying a CO2 canister for a 'gas chamber'. well thanks for chatting!!

:IE When I forget to order frozen and realize I've run out I just run to the grocery store and pick up a small amount of dry ice. I put it in a bucket, pour some water over it (to disolve it faster) "scoop" the CO2 out (It's heavier then air so you can do this) with a good sized container and then drop the feeders in....no muss no fuss. I find this better (for me) then the wacking method or the cervical dislocation. I have no problems with the other methods, just I prefer CO2.
