does anyone think this would be overly cruel? people breed mice for snakes, but "snakes are capitive, and need to eat" with Summer at it's start, Squeaks and Rosilee my two muscovies have found a new dusk hobby, catching, and eating mice!, wich they love. the other day while it was still light out enough to see, Rosilee managed to hunt down, and eat 4 or 5 young mice. Squeaks managed to get one, the lumbering oaf that he is. anyways, thats what -I- was thinking of doing, I used to breed mice as pets, and I LOVE them, but I've never been overly found of agouti(the wild color) mice, though agouti babies are cute, IF you handled them, our nieghbors use i live-trap to catch mice that live under their stove,and let them go in the woods, i've bred wild mouse hybrids before, the babies ALWAYS take on the behaviors of the wild parent, so i wasn't fond of them i was thinking of having a small group of wild mice, or wild/domestic hybrids to raise up babies as muscovy treats, most likely fed live, because I wouldn't have the heart to kill them, just toss and walk away. that way I could also easily feed mice without having to worry about wild parasites or desease. thought, opinions? I havn't made up my mind yet, but it's just a thought, and since I don't free-range, if the other ducks wanted in, it'd give them something to do because they don't get goldfish like they used to.
