If you want to take a drive i can direct you to a lady that breeds mice. She's just past Jan Ellis auctioneers out on the old Pretoria road. About half an hours drive but at least you can buy couple of newborns and freeze them....

Why dont you just order frozen pinks. I am sure I can arrange to drop some off at Graeme if you cannot find anywhere else.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Okey so today i am very excited.

My cb2010 baby checkered garter has taken her first Pinky, no hesitation at all, she is still small so i bought the smallest frozen pinky i could find and it was still to big so i did the gorry bit and cut the pinky length wise in 2.

The perfect size, I was holding the pinky in the tweezers, opened her cage end before I could tease her with the pinky part she grabbed it out of the tweezers. I didnt take a photo, will get one with the next feeding. No more earthworms or fish strips for her.

She looks very happy! and I am very happy!
