    Great product, fair prices, fantastic shipping/packaging, great customer service.

    I've heard lots of recommendations for Big Cheese, Perfect Prey, and Big Cheese. Big Cheese is currently shipping for $29 a box and I dropped my order yesterday. For longer term storage, a non-frost free freezer is preferable to a frost free model

    In my experience ordering from them over the last year and a bit this is their standard price and not short-term deal like it might seem from the way it is advertised on their sight. It's been $29 per box since I first started ordering from them isntead of picking up at local expos.

    Haha, yeah, “limited time only”. But I’m not complaining, at least not about the shipping. But it is frustrating that they are ALWAYS out of all or some combination of what I need. I could not place an order today if I wanted to because they out of Mediums and Larges as usual.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Best if you can anticipate & order ahead of summer...with ppl breeding snakes & buying more food, it's common for suppliers to run a bit short.
    Many friends in low places...

    I totally understand that. It doesn’t matter what time of year I order, Big Cheese has been sold out of my needs for the past 2-3 years. I order 3 times a year, sometimes 4, and I check their website in between, just like I did today. Strange how none of the other companies are sold out.

    Re: Cheapest online feeder rats

    I've ordered from Big Cheese Rodents, Product was good, no issues with shipping, product was still frozen when it got to me 3 days later.

    Just placed an order with Perfect Prey today, being their in Florida their much closer to me (Northern Va).

    I do know even with paying the 30.00 avg shipping fee, I'm still paying about 50% less per rodent than the local chain pet stores charge.

    Last order was through Rodent Pro and not going there again. The weened and small rats are pretty unimpressive. Poor packaging, no markings of any size or anything. Just tossed into a ziplock and not very clean either. I had good luck with Big Cheese and am going back. My BP’s refuse the Rodent Pro rats every other feeding.
