Question Need opinion...

I hope this is where this goes... I need to know who is good to get feeder mice from? I want clean/healthy mice for our sailfins (they are arriving tomorrow) and don't have a clue who is good... I know there is a BOI but it seems most of those posts are about pet purchases... just wanted personal feedback/opinion!
Also, who has good roaches?

Thank you.

Here's a useful tidbit. When you find a good source that you trust, stick with them. I was once given some frozen mice at a herp club from a "stand-up" guy and fed some to my boas. They all became very ill and I lost my Hog Island boa. I had a necropsy done, however the results were inconclusive. Stick with what you know works well. Good luck, Art

The mice that I was given were frozen. The individual that gave them to me said that they were excess from a lab. I questioned several people that I knew and was assured that they were healthy and it was safe. He's been giving others at the herp club mice for quite some time. I rolled the dice and shot craps. I contacted the person I received the mice from and another fellow who also took some mice, but hadn't fed them yet. The whole thing was strange. I should have followed my first instinct.

.....that's a bummer

....sorry to hear about your loss art,i guess when a person hears lab and mice in the same sentence it's time to do a about face.thanks for sharing so others don't make the same mistake.BTW BCRF raises there own mice and they DON'T buy lab stock,something to consider when looking for a supplier

I am new to my area however I have located two rodent breeders with great prices and healthy stock. Boas are fat and happy in the basement.
