Back in the day (80's) when I had my Boa's, I fed them chicks, they were older than a day though...and cost about dollar live. I would alternate between Rats and Chicks. They both did very well on them. At one point I started raising a Mom and Pop Rat factory, it worked out ok, but cleaning the mess from the Rats was a pain. I think I lasted about a year doing that, then just started buying Rats again, at about 1.50 to 2.00 bucks...they really liked the Chicks better but would go for the Rats also.

Now when you say cost for your Indigo, how old and how big is it?

How often do you feed it?

Now days, I see the frozen option is the way to go.....if you've ever messed with Rats it doesn't take long to understand that.....ha!

But all in all, I think people with Dogs and Cats probably spend more on food in a given month than snakes....now that's a racket!

Sorry if you've answered some of the questions before...I just started following the Indigo section.
