    Rat Breeding?

    Does anyone breed rats for their snakes? I have some questions regarding getting started - It would be a heck of a lot more cost effective than buying.

    In this section there are several examples of breeding rats and mice. Maybe this will help you. http://reptile-parrots.com/forums/fo...-Breeding-Care

    My room mate's dad used to breed rats all the time, but he does have an account here. Basically, all I know is remove the dad after breeding is successful as he will kill the babies too early.
    I am a bird breeder who is far from experienced, but learning quickly.
