Heating frozen rodents
Just interested in opinions and methods regarding heating up frozen rodents for feeding. I've heard pros and cons for different methods and am wanting to know what others with more experience are doing.
I just let them thaw naturally to room temperature, never heat them at all.

i just get a tub and put all the rodents/rabbits/mice in, under hot water, not boiling water. Leave em and flip them over onced one side is thawed, this takes less than 10 minutes. I have tried putting them in a bag etc etc to stop them getting wet but it takes too long and i just dry them afterwards.

A few on a skewer and a few minutes on the BBQ does the trick."Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect "

Pythoncrazy: I know with my own, I like to feed in house, as removing can agitate the snake. If he's in his own enclosure, hunting for food like he should of an evening, then it's very easy to feed them. That being said, many have no issue removing to feed. But I do towel off my wet rats to avoid excess clumping of substrate. It's a simpler fix to the issue then removing the snake to have him go '*** is going on here... oh look, a rat'.

I've also known cases where removing to feed makes the snake unruly to handle because whenever he's taken out he assumes he's going to be fed.
