When to switch to rat pups if breeder had him on large mice

Continuing the discussion from They will eat!:

Can I ask you this if the breeder was feeding live large mice how long should I wait to give him rat pups???And he’s 200grams

As long as they are the correct size, you can switch anytime. Just keep it around the same size as their thickest part.

:point_up:this for sure.

I switch mine over to rats as soon as possible if they refuse to start on them.

If eyeballing the largest part of your noodle is a bit tough, something around 15-20 grams should be a great feeder size to start trying.

You may need some dirty mouse bedding to scent the rats if they’re not used to them. BPs can be picky sometimes
