is there seriously no way to ethically purchase feeder rats?

is there seriously no way to ethically purchase feeder rats? the socially acceptable procedure is to stuff them in dark tiny bins with no stimulation and then gas them with co2, which is incredibly painful. i want a snake but cant get one in good conscience when i think about this

    Gas them with nitrogen instead: it is painless. Look it up.

    The way I kill rabbits for food is probably the most ethical
    You just put your foot on the neck and then quickly put pressure and pull and the head pops off like it's nothing.
    I'm not into snakes though.
    Not really my thing. Seems like a waste of mammalian life and time to try and get enough chicks regularly or raise rats.

        I guess mice don't suffer from it like people? A guy on YouTube said he covered the tub so he doesn't see the struggling. Lab mice/rats exist because they're like humans. The CO2 must be torture. Getting eaten seems way better. Having your neck quickly broken by a herp shop employee seems best

      Inert gas euthanasia requires much more expensive safety training, insurance, and monitoring equipment than CO2. You can’t accidentally drown in CO2, unless you can’t escape a confined space, because if you breath a pure CO2 atmosphere it will trigger the vertebrate drowning reflex.

      It’s not actually painful, what it is is terrifying. Google “Helmet Horror” which is the same thing but for people.

      I buy live and break their necks myself, but not everyone is willing to do this, so I do understand the market for pre-killed and frozen.

    Why now just get a pet snake that does not eat mice? Just a quick Google and I found a few that can be fed on worms, insects, and fish

    Make a Wauf bioactive enclosure that's easier to manage than the breeding pits they're in.

    Plenty of snakes eat minnows, frogs, worms, and snails.

    you could breed your own rats and ensure they are raised ethically, but that would require you to care for lots of rats
