Hi all,

I've now been keeping my Easterns for about 15 months, and still have a couple of questions. Both (male and female/"unrelated" are 2011's. The female will eat mice and rats like there's no tomorrow, and she is impressively large. Not fat, but 5.5' and thick-bodied. The male will not touch mice/rats, and only eats chicks and chicken necks. He is quite smaller, both is length and girth. Probably nearing 5'. He was like this, though, when I got him (meaning not as large as she was/is). He still eats, just doesn't clear his plate everytime.

I guess my concern is if chicks/chicken necks are enough for him to reach his full size potential. I would through in some fish, but I don't know any good source for whole fish in Central PA.
