Understanding the pros and cons of feeding live/stunned vs f/t mice, I have a question about whether folks would refuse to purchase an otherwise beautiful and healthy juvenile snake that was raised on live/stunned mice. I am hoping to breed some honduran milks in a couple of years among a small stock of current juveniles. I prefer to feed live prey (currently pinkies, but these snakes will outgrow those soon), but if it's a deal-breaker for potential buyers a few years down the road I may reconsider. I can see why hardcore proponents of f/t mice would not want to go through "re-education" of live-fed snakes. I guess I'm wondering if there is much of a market for live-fed snakes. Thoughts?
