I have been reading on this forum and found out that people gas there mice with co2 before they freeze them.
HOW?

I buy dry ice. Put some in a small bowl of water. Put that in a large tank or bucket. Add mice (not in the bowl with the dry ice). The gas, being heavier than air, fills the large container and kills the mice very quickly.

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 do the same thing up through fuzzy size. If I have just a few larger mice to kill, I just use the "forcefull contact with a hard surface" method. Kills them instantly if you do it right.

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.
I hope no one thinks I am a terrible person.

I don't think you are a terrible person, but how can a kitten have a wolf in its neck????
