Rosies are more efficient food-wise compared to kingsnakes for example. Food goes a long way with rosies as long as they have some fat stored, and during cooler weather they just do not need food at all. Totally normal for adults and subadults. Babies are always more inclined to feed all year because much of that energy goes to growth.

I bet in preparation for potential breeding in March/April, your female rosy will become voracious at that time. Watch your hands. Adult female rosies take no prisoners. It is then that you should feed as often as she wants.
