    where do you buy it from?

    Looking on line they are charging just as much for postage as for the actual food :eek: even ones that arent box and dry ice packed :rolleyes:

    It's always the postage that puts me off. Why charge £10?! The actual costs of the frozen mice/rats are great.

    same here Luckly ive found a very good one i now know mice/rats will stay frozen for 2days in the boxes with ice packs so can choose a slightly cheaper postal option Ive been buying from www.888repitles.co.uk and they have been very good!
    it cost me £32 for next day delivery for 25 jumbo mice and 50 chicks :)

    Alfie is currently on medium/large mice but i want to get him onto rats.

    I need him to take his first feed off me first though. I'm trying him this Sunday :)

    Yeah But its a pain to get there like 3 buses different companies so nearly works out the same as getting it sent lol, as neither of us drive. Plus they are pretty exspensive

    Theres apprently a new one thats abit closer i might send him down there to try

    Its a pain we used to get them off a friend who had breeder rats and mice and spoilt us by they that we only paid like £4 for a months worth lol

    It is legal as long as you don't go telling the whole world about it. The RSPCA for example would try and prosecute you for it.

    oooo no never i couldnt do it, i feel guilty if i step on a snail or squash a spider :eek:ut: i couldnt bring myself to do it or let oh do it.

    Just have to wait till i get the new fridge freezer and buy in bulk again to make up for the postage.
