Hey folks. Sorry for the newbie questions. But I thought I had another month to figure out the proper feeding protocol, etc, before the litter dropped. But alas - I was surprised with 11 new babies this morning. I don't have an accurate count of the morphs (some are so subtle looking) but approx half are anery and half are normal appearance. (Mom was a normal het for anery/albino and Dad was anery).

Anyway -

Can someone lay out the basics for feeding these new ones?
- Do they feed before or after first shed?
- When is the first shed typically?
- When should I try to feed the first time?
- Should I go with live pinkie to make sure they eat? Or should I try frozen/thawed to get them started?

Any tips are appreciated. Or links to guides with the above information. I have a couple books at home but I'm stuck at work and anxious to come up with a plan.

thanks,
