OMG! I had been trying and trying to find the feeder website with free shipping over $100, couldn't remember the name. I want a place to just order rats, chicks and soft furs from because I fill the rodent pro order up fast with guinea pigs and quail.
Well there you go! Haha, I got all excited about the free shipping over $100 too, it's just way more cost effective for me right now. We still have a third of that order in the freezer that the ferrets are finally working through.
I do know you have to actually call in to order soft-furs, just FYI. They're always having some type of sale going on on something, and their mice come in really clean, too. I want to spring for chicks the next order I put in, so the fuzzbutts have something to snack on.
I got mice and DOC from them last fall, and they're the only ones Ive found whose mice are as good quality and clean as the ones I get from Big Cheese. The only problem was that I ordered jumbo mice, forgetting that none of mine would eat them several years ago...so now I have 6 packs of brown jumbo mice that no one wants.

I just received my first order from American Rodent, I got two hundred large mice and fifty day old chicks to start.
I'd snag some pictures but they're now all safely tucked into the freezer like a mad tetris puzzle and I don't want to disturb it!
They came in just as zoshi described. Large styrofoam box tucked inside a cardboard one. All of them were still nicely frozen solid, but not 'icey'. One of the bags did rupture, but only two mice 'escaped' and I'm not upset with that. From handling those I can see these guys look clean and they smell great... well... like living mice. I've run into frozen mice that smelled vile like they've been dead a while with other sources.
I will definitely be ordering from these guys again.
Also, I want to mention how patient and courteous they were over the phone with my order. The website listed large mice as out of stock, so I called to find out if they knew when the mice would come in. It turns out even if they list something online as out of stock they may have it for small (as in a couple hundred) orders. Since they do deal with customers ordering in the 1,000's. I wasn't really ready to order but as I said before, the guy who helped me was very patient and walked me through it and I was very pleased with their customer service. ^.^
