Yeah you should definatly breed your own... $2.99 for a pinky?!?!?!?!?!?! I pay .60-.75

WOW...huge difference!

I know Canadian Feeders had really cheap feeders,but I heard they changed owners and my friend was ordering from them and was less then impressed with the quality and service.She told me not to order from them again.I used to order my bugs from there.

Actually I have friends with reptiles who told me if I ever start breeding feeders,they would buy some off me.So I will only supply my friends probably.I also won't mass produce though,since I only want one or two snakes.

I would actually prefer that...I asked a friend if she could kill them for me,since she was used to doing it and she was fine with it.But she moved away.So unless I can get one of my other snake/reptile owning friends to do it,I will probably have to do it myself.

But I really much prefer to breed my own feeders,because the breeders would be treated and loved just as my own pets and that way I would know they were healthy.I don't trust pet stores.Also pet stores are expensive! A pinky MOUSE is $2.99! That is ridiculous!

WOW 2.99 a pinky.... here there only .99 ea and mice are 1.92ea and small rats are 4.27ea and it just goes up.

I would start doing the C02 mmmm But still is is safe to feed a rep the C02 killed mouse? Just want to know cause i mean the mouse breaths in that C02.

I feed my leo's pinky mice once a month.

Yes it is safe to feed a feeder killed with C2O to your reptile. The C2O does not gather and remain in the tissues of the animal. Millions of reptiles are fed C2O killed feeder with no problem.

Storage container (anysize you prefer) with a few holes so that the air may be displaced by the CO2 without the box exploding. Them either take a critter keeper or something of the like with holes, put the dry ice in (careful) and let the chamber fill up a bit. Another way is to have the dry ice in another container and connected to the chamber by a tube.

I dont think you answered my question on how much you charge for your hissers. Just wondering. The reptile store here sells them for $3-$4 a piece.


Where would you get the dry ice to do something liek that? I dont think Ive seen it being sold anywhere before.

Apparently Walmart, party and grocery stores sell it. You can also buy cans of CO2 at places that sell paintball stuff, and online.
