Our frozen mice are bred in a USDA licensed facility, with a constant flow of fresh air, clean drinking water, nutritious food and clean, dry bedding. We’re fanatical about animal health and nutrition.
Feeder mice are quickly and humanely euthanized; individually flash frozen with legs and tail tucked neatly under counted into re-closeable freezer bags and promptly shipped to your door. A healthy food source that’s high in nutritional value and robust in size.
What types of animals eat Mice?
Birds of Prey:
In the wild, small rodents are a primary food source for many birds of prey (also called raptors). Frozen mice are easy to feed to sick, injured or orphaned wild raptors during their rehabilitation or to resident raptors at zoos or education centers. Layne labs also has colored mice that look more like the mice found in the wild.
Thousands of sick, injured or orphaned birds of prey are rescued every year and brought to local Wildlife Rehabilitation facilities to be cared for until they can return to the wild. If you find an injured, sick or orphaned raptor, or any other wild animal, please contact your nearest local wildlife rehabilitator. You can view our list of wildlife rehabilitators to find the one closest to you.
Many snakes and other meat-eating reptiles can be maintained on mice as their primary food. Having top quality feeder mice are important to ensuring the health of snakes and lizards whether they are pets, exhibit animals or sick or injured wild reptiles being cared for by wildlife rehabilitators. Feeding Layne Labs mice are one way to do that.
Wild Carnivore Diet:
Rodents are also a common food for many wild carnivores, particularly the small cats. It makes sense, then, to feed frozen mice as part of creating a well balanced diet for all carnivores in captivity. Whole foods provide nutrients that may not be found in commercial carnivore diets. In addition, mice from Layne Labs may be used as enrichment for captive carnivores or to test the skills of animals who will be going back to the wild.
