Has anyone used these guys as a food source ? Can you recommend them ?
Their prices seem reasonable. My current supplier, apart from being a fair bit more expensive, seems to be very inconsistent with the sizing. eg. One time I might buy 10 fuzzies, the largest maxing out at 25g, and then the next time the largest will max out at like 12g. So I am paying the same amount of money for less food. This isn't a one-off thing, either, it's happening all the time. Just seems ridiculous. As this is a shop, it is not necessarily their fault, as they are being supplied from someone else, but nonetheless, I am seeking out a different source.
If anyone can recommend a better source (that is feasible to me, being in the Macarthur area) then please post here, or feel free to PM me.
I have used DOA they are very good , great prices , easy to deal with and fast delivery highly recommend them9:34:59] dpeica: if snakes were meant to be held they'd have handles

Thanks Peter. How does the postage work ? I mean, do they deliver within a certain timeframe, can you nominate it, etc. ?

I'm currently buying weaner & fuzzy rats and hopper mice.
At times, the weaners have not been much bigger than the fuzzies.
At the moment my weekly feed consists of 3 weaner rats, 1 fuzzy rat & 2 hopper mice. Apart from being quite costly, my animals are getting inconsistent (sized) meals. I'm sure that doesn't bother them too much, but it's not really value for money, IMO.

I emailed DOA Rodents on the 7th of this month,rung 2 times (says the person was unavailable) and left a text - all for a quote for about $1000 worth of rats and no reply. I am trying to source my order locally as freight was a bit high but - if that falls through Wokka emailed me a reply within the day
I have bought from DOA rodents in the past but I always do a pick up so can't tell you about postage time. Easy transaction, email was always responded to promptly and mice/rats are fresh.

I get my rodents from Tony, he's a really top bloke. Always looks after me, if i'm after a specific weight he'll cull them at that size for me. All his rodents are top notch, freshly culled, clean and nice and fed on high quality food. I highly recommend using him

I'm not sure, i've never picked up, only ever had them delivered. I think giving him a call outside work hours (5-7pm) is your best bet, like I said when I talked to him a week or so ago he has been flat out at work lately
No shop front,i used to pick up out front of house
