Yeah, it's not carbon monoxide they suggest, but helium or nitrogen. Helium should be easy to get?
nangangangang to death, you reckon?

Certainly cheaper than head first into liquid nitrogen.

If you have a guillotine and can handle the mess OK, I'd go for decapitation as one of the quickest and most humane ways of euthanasing the rats. If not, it shouldn't be too hard to get hold of a CO2 container. I use them for home brewing, so your local home brew shop may even let you use one of theirs if you just take the baby rats along in a container.

As for drowning, crushing or starvation... I think those are all terrible ways to die. Freezing would be my third pick if you can't manage the first two. But make sure it is bloody cold, sitting in -3C waiting an hour or two to die would not be pleasant. Get the freezer down to -20C or colder, should shut down their little bodies within minutes one would hope.

This guy.

Also, I have had a lot of experience in doing this unfortunately. Euthanasia of rodents in research follows a code of Animals Ethics that states guillotine is best.

Sorry i didnt post the final soloution earlier.

I made a descion and it was "by nature they came, by nature they go" Basiclaly i let nature take care of it.

As i think i have finally sealed up my house and rats will no longer be a problem! awesome...and mice for that matter!!

I decided to leave the baby rats in a palm tree i know the rats go to as a family to eat its flowers...they eat all the pollen off the flower heads.

So i left the baby rats in the palm thinking perhaps the group will take them back if they come across them...

Well i checked the cup i had them in, in the palm tree, and it was empty..... But... there was some blood in there... so maybe a bird got them.

and to be honest i tryed to kill them humanely another way first but they survived it LOL... i was shocked. I wont mention what i did....i thought it would be a sure fire method.... but it didnt work. so i let nature do it or me in the tree instead.

Don't rats, like mice, eat other rodents?

Rodent adoptions take a bit of work even with pets.... I doubt it would commonly work in the wild.

Ohwell, at least they are gone now!

Leaving them outside was the best option. Birds, other rats, mammals, you name it baby rats would be a pleasant snack.
