Ok, here we go, keep in mind that I am new at raising mice. Ignorance is my defense.

I have been reading on this forum and found out that people gas there mice with co2 before they freeze them.
HOW? I don't know. Why? I don't know. I have just started breeding and have just had two litters of mice in my experience.

When they got to the appropriate size I would pick them up and put them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer. I did feel bad that they had to die to feed my snakes but I did not feel bad about how they were dying. Never crossed my mind. Until now.... but not sure why....

I guess I'm asking several questions HOW and WHY with the co2, and also I'm looking for a "YES" when I ask if anyone just throws them in the freezer like i did?? Just so I don't feel so bad.

Story time: When I was little my mom put a little kitten on a stump and cut it's head off with an axe, because it had a Wolf in it's neck. NOW... Why did she do that when she could have just put it in a hole and covered it up? It was going to die either way. Not sure. I am sure that she felt bad that it had to die and maybe she thought it needed a quick death. End of story. Just for your info I found out later that you can get a wolf out of a cats neck and save the cat.

I hope no one thinks I am a terrible person.

DAVY
