    Rats all the way IMO: easy to get, easy to feed (ie don't need to feed multiples when the snake needs larger feeders), and cheap.

    I buy frozen. Breeding isn't worth it unless you have a bunch of snakes

    This is where I get mine:http://www.rodentpro.com/

    But can be difficult to get ahold of in many places and costs more.

    I agree with ASF's, though I'm not so inclined to feed them to all of my snakes. Really, it's a personal preference. Rats are the most convenient, but I highly doubt one rodent is much better than the other. Mice are absolutely fine, and balls are more apt to eat mice(over rats) without a fuss whatsoever, but when you have a 2,500 gram female preparing for breeding season, it kind of sucks(and can be expensive depending on where you source your food) to feed 6-8 mice at a clip.
