Reptile expo and site......
If you register (free) you can check out the classifieds..... they have a feeder section! You can get mice for SUPER cheap. Don't bother with the expensive website ones that charge way too much for shipping!
Also, every month or two there's a reptile expo in Mississauga. It's worth the drive, mice are sold for great prices! You can stock up for a few months and only have to buy food twice a year!
Mice are usually only .30 to .75 each (pinkies to larges), even less if you buy a lot.
Hope this helps!
