Posted by brett bloom at 2/23/2009 9:13:34 PM



ok  i have some really picky eaters and they will only eat african soft fur rats. the person i knew here in texas that was breeding them passed away on sat. his wife said she sold all the rats he had to someone in lubbock, texas. now i am stuck with no way to get anymore. the few reptile stores i know of dont sell them. (yesterday i must have called every reptile shop in texas). i dont know if big cheese carries them, or even pet snake snakes. if anyone knows a breeder of someone that would ship live, please let me know. im in major need.

You are gonna be hard pressed to find someone to ship live to you. If you do, the shipping is outrageous!! If you have any local reptile shows... well that may be a possibility.
Anyway, I do know that American Rodent Supply carries AFS - Frozen - I buy rats/mice from them, and so far have been very happy with their product.

I can talk to a friend of mine that breeds them but I have no idea if he'd ship especially live?

Not sure about anyone who'd ship live, as Sonja said it's outrageous for it.

Have you tried chicken grease? I knwo that sounds weird but try KFC chicken grease. get soem and rub the skin on the mouse. I know a few who've had 100% success rates when nothing worked!

Either way I hope you find some.

thank you all, and scott, i have tried everything, including that. i have also tried many other ways of assist feeding with them. the onlything they will take(and actually keep down) is asf's.

Joe Savage - Serving Nashville, Tennessee.  Phone # (615) 477-4110.  I have been breeding various color strains of ASF rats for the last year and have quite an extensive colony.  Since these rats are so rare and I take special care for them, I am selling them alive for $25.00 per trio.  I will ship them alive at the buyer's expense overnight.  If there is any interest, please get back to me.





I don't know this guy....or bought them from him before. But you might want to call him.

Plano Pets (planopets.net) sells them for $17 a pop - pricey, but if you need them, you need them. Mine haven't had litters yet, or I'd offer you a few.

I HAVE A SUPPLIER IN AIKEN SC THAT I GET FROZEN ASF FROM. TRY AIKEN FEEDER FOOD .COM   JEREMY MORRIS    PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE. HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO HELP YOU.

AGH, I had a local store that sold them for 4 or 5 bucks each for adults, but I just called them and they can't find them....I'll let you know if they get them in, and I'll ship em to you if I can get ahold of them.  



Are you looking to get them live and start your own colony, or bulk frozen?
