 Breeding feeder mice... Not happening!

Hi, I own a lot of snakes and I’m trying to breed mice. My rats are producing like crazy, but my mice have no drive. They just eat and get big and fat. And some of them constantly fight for absolutely no reason, they just wanna bite I guess. I’ve gotten mice from pet stores, breeders and reptile shows. Any advice?

I use to breed mice and I put one male in with 2 females in a 20 Gallon long tank for a week then took him out, then put him back in a week and out a week like that till I noticed the females getting bigger. It worked well for me. they need three hides one for each mouse.. and I fed mine a pellet food with fresh foods daily. What are you feeding them? and are they in tanks? or what are they in? and how many females do you have for one male?

Well, I think the temperature was too high for them. I moved the different groups to the cool basement and I’ve had a ton of new babies. The aggressive ones, I’ve found make better snake food than breeders, so I don’t even bother with them anymore. Thanks for the advice.
