Not sure about retics, but we have an albino green burm that really doesn't like big rats, and yet seems to relish rabbits.

I too was worried when I first ordered the rabbits in, but they didn't last for long and all the snakes loved them (and it's kind of nice to see a meal taking longer to eat - seems somewhat more natural).

Interesting what Brian and the others are saying though and 1/3. I also wonder if some of the morphs (and multiple morphs) are more picky? I'm sure you probably won't have a problem though, and scenting as described will almost certainly mean you won't be stuck with your rabbits! With the albino green (my only 'problem' feeder - and she's really not a problem) for example, I just defrost a chick (which she LOVES), rub it all over the rat, and also put either a wing or a leg in the rats mouth. It works every time.
