Sounds like a plan....now just to set it up.

I have a bunch of 10 gallon tanks, I was thinking one female per tank and then just rotate a male between them so I allways have rats of different sizes. I also have a few LARGE empty tanks (I know I know I need to fill them with snakes lol) that I can raise babies up in.

The corn is a 2 year old (about) and on rat pups, the three balls will be yearlings in late June so they are still babies and are on rat pups/small rats. I'm thinking 3 females will be enough to keep me in rats to feed them easy and if I start getting to many I just put the male on a rest break hehe. It will also give me time to work out the system I need for when I have hatchlings in two years (Or a little over one but I doubt it...dont want to rush them.)

Now I just have to pick up some rats and water bottles and such.

Thanks for the advice all.
