    Feedback on Big Cheese

    Hey all, just wanted to send some praise Big Cheese's way.

    This was my first order with them. I typically use Perfect Prey, primarily because of geography, but they were out of a size I needed. So I checked out Big Cheese based on positive feedback here on the forum.

    They had everything I needed, prices were fair and they were offering $29 flat rate shipping (great deal for TX to MA, Perfect Prey is usually $45+ from NY to MA). So I placed an order.

    The order arrived a little while ago and I am very happy. Despite the package being held at the FedEx facility in TX for around 25 hours, everything was still frozen SOLID. FedEx received the package Monday at 1:44pm and it arrived around 4:00pm today.

    Big Cheese did a fantastic job packing the order, the prey itself is neatly packaged and the quality looks great.

    Overall I am very happy and will not hesitate to give them my business again.

    No medium rats

    I wonder if they have cheaper shipping for within TX.

    Big fan of both big cheese and perfect prey. Prefer big cheese a little more, but perfect prey seems to have a little bit (couple of grams) weight to their sizes. But love big cheeses packaging. Canít go wrong with either, IMO. ✌️😉

    I've used Big Cheese & Perfect Prey, Don't have a human review for you....

    But I've never had a Snake decline a meal from either company yet, if that helps at all

    Iíve ordered from perfect prey and big cheese. Thereís really no difference as far as I can tell. Perfect prey has quicker shipping though. Both sources are equal in quality.

    Yeah, packaging and prey are pretty much identical. Can't go wrong with either in my opinion. For me it'll come down to availability and shipping costs when I order in the future.

    I agree that you really can't go wrong with either supplier. I'd say the quality of feeders and packaging are pretty similar. BC is often out of the medium and large rats that I need but their flat rate shipping and overall prices are a bit lower that PP. I had mostly been using PP because I couldn't get the rat sizes I needed from BC. I got lucky on my last order and BC had everything I needed. The savings was pretty substantial.

    Cool good for you craiga. Yeah I still buy from BC and think they are almost perfect. Like ziggy said they are all ways out of medium and large rats which isn't that bad for me luckily.
