With calcium? Or with vitamins plus calcium? I would not do vitamins at every feeding. Calcium is OK at every feeding.

I used to dust with all snakes species years ago, then I quit. Then I started again. IMO it seems to make a difference in vigor when the diet is thawed mice vs fresh mice.

I do vitamins about once every 3 feedings, and I do a light dust of calcium each feeding. Most probably falls off, but some gets in.

Calcium-supplemented female rosies always produced well for me back in the day. I don't think it is the only difference, but it is part of the overall equation.

Too many vitamins all the time is not good. Better to go sparingly on vits. With sinaloan milks, vits produced nice color. Probably beta-carotene. Just a little goes far.
