Layne Labs

I've never heard of this place before this time. So, out of curiosity, anyone use them? They're stationed in CA.

Wow, compare them to rodent pro. I think they cost more at that lab place. I have to run or I would check them against rp myself.

I just did buy from Layne Laboratories. It was my first purchase of pinkies for my first cornsnake. Bought 50 one-day-old pinkies, packaged 25 apiece. Don't know if I'm supposed to get specific on prices because I'm new here but the unit price of the 50 was 35 cents each with the shipping charge for delivery by FedEx with dry ice in a large box came to $28.80 for a total of $46.30 with no tax. The pinkies were still frozen when I uncrated them. I tried my snake on one the next morning and it was scarfed down in a few minutes, so I'm grateful for this regardless of whether I may have saved a few bucks elsewhere and received not-so-good mice. But what do I know? I'm a real newbie in the cornsnake department. Hope this info helps you, though.

I have bought from Layne Labs before. their mice are good, and their shipping is much better than any other company that I have found so far. their mice cost more than some of the cheaper places though,

I have not had any issues with the mice I got at rodentpro. Not sure I would buy from a LAB. Who knows what those mice went through during life. I mean come on, its a LAB.

lol...I'd immagine thats a name. They probably produce rodents for lab testing as well...I didnt poke around the website too much though. Looks like a pretty well run spot.

Will have to check them out. I've been looking at rodentpro, but the smallest bag they have is 100, and that's just too many mice of any one size, as I have only the one snake. But all the other places I've seen had such higher prices that I would spend almost as much on 50 pinks there as I would 100 pinks at rodentpro.

Hopefully Layne has the balance of cost and quantity I need.

Oh well. Just compared. It's cheaper to buy 100 mice from rodentpro than 50 mice from Layne.
