    Finally got my rat rack up and running!

    So I I picked up a 5 tub rat rack for 50 bucks with no tubs a few months back. Today I got the tubs pine bedding mazuri rodent diet and water bottles my buddy found some nice starters I currently have 4 tubs with 1 male to 4 females. He was able to get some nice sized girls for me one may actually be pregnant with her first litter! None have had babies yet and are just up to size to breed. I currently have 30 ball pythons to feed.

    Depending on how this goes I might expand get a few more rat racks I had a good bit of Bulk rat suppliers I knew that always had them now they never seem to have any of the sizes I need and I end up having to go to two different people to fill my order. With 16 females and 4 males Tubs, bedding, feed including the price of the starters I'm only in this setup $150 I'm sure it will pay for itself in no time!

    Breeding will definitely pay for itself. However you probably want at LEAST 30 rats for 30 snakes!
