Stuck with 4 fuzzy mice...Should I keep them alive?

I got stuck with 4 fuzzy mice today, they are way too small for my 255 gram snake. I dont know what to do with them, should I buy formula and nurse them? I would feel really bad about feeding them to the snake, it seems inhumane compared to gassed than frozen. But Im afraid they wont survive either way, any advice?

    Well, unless you have the know how and preparation to hand nurse fuzzies, they will die anyway. 4 of them is beyond one persons challenge for that.

    A surrogate mama mouse may work if she has a small litter.

    Never saw a snake wouldn't eat any rodent if hungry, even pinkies to a carpet python.
