I posted a similar question in the pit forum about my bull and pine. but this applies to our corn snakes.
I'm about to order bulk feeders for the first time, and I'm not sure what to get.
My son and daughter each have a 5 month old normal phase corn snake (clutch mates). Right now they are eating VERY small mouse pinkies.
I know that every snake is different, but I'm just looking for a an estimation, so I know what to order. What should I expect them to be eating six months from now? On the average, how long should I expect them to be on mouse pinkies before moving them up to something larger. Should I switch them to rats as soon as I can, or should I leave them on mice.
I'm just worried I"m going to either not get enough pinkies or get too many pinkies and have nothing to feed them to. I've had snakes in the past that showed no interest in small prey items.
