In Reply to: a question about feeding live and breeding mice.......... posted by mike_panic on May 04, 2003 at 12:49:57:

:hello guys, after finally getting fed up with mice dealers and the ever climbing costs of frozen mice, I have decided to attempt to breed my own. I have a couple of questions for those who do the same. First, yes I know to stun the mouse before I put him in the snake enclosure and yes I know of the smell. Does anyone breed mice in the same room that their snakes are in. Im not talking a lot of mice, Im starting with five bins of 2.5. Does the smell keep the snakes constantly hungry?(I figured if anything, they would get more exercise). I have always kept a very strict feeing regimin and will continue to do so. Do they become no longer excited about the smell of a mouse, ie feeding day? Anyone who breeds mice in the same room as their snakes could you please list some pros(if any) and cons. Include how many bins of what ratio, and how many snakes you can feed with them. Thanks alot, I appreciate it. Mike Panichi


1 male has no problem with 5 females,i have had one male with up to 10 females.2 males is asking for trouble..they will always be fighting and possably cause so much stress in the tub that the young will be harmed,also the more dominant male will chew the other males nadds to shreds
