Yeah I am talking about large adult mice :) I KNOW it's very cheap, I am very fortunate that my local herp show does sell rodents real CHEAP!! This guy offered me more sweet deal if I buy over 500 to 1000 rodents, which offer I couldn't refuse but I told him that I donít need that much right now. I'll hold him on that deal whenever I need more than what is needed. I donít have to worry about the gas expense; I live 1 or 2 miles away from my local herp show and it made my life easier now. Sometimes I have my friend to buy rodents for me when he is selling his reptiles at the show so I donít have to pay the entrance fee.

However... Raising your own rodents may be cheaper as well. But LOT WORK !

:I think most of us don't have access to monthly reptile shows though. If you are talking about large adult mice, .20-.30 cents each is very, very good pricing - cheaper than I've ever seen!
:For the rest of us, you can browse the net or look at the classifieds at reptile.com. Rodentpro.com has large adult mice at .61 cents each (for 250) INCLUDING packing in dry ice plus shipping (at least to my location).
:If you can get pricing like that and have access to regular shows (be sure to factor in traveling and entrance costs) and the mice are fed on high quality chow, then by all means go for it.

::They will kill you on shipping fee.. Trust me.... monthly reptiles show is lot lot lot cheaper!! i buy my rodents at the show. It will cost me 20 to 30 bucks for 100 frozen mice.
::agree with me mr.moss? If you cant go to the show and get the mice, you might as well order rodents from the magazines that mr moss suggested..
