I have to chime in here when I see people feeding a kingsnake pinkies only ones per sweek.

First of all take FR advice. He is on the money and what he said about available info on the internet is true.

IMO you are not feeding the snake enough. Not by a maile. If you have a temp gradient (hot and cold sides) the snake can eat and digest properly.

Feeding a neonate a small pinky (I assume it is neonate size still since it is still feeding on pinkies one per week) should only be temporary. In other words you should offer larger size mice or feed many pinkies per week. The snake wants to grow and if you don't it will stay small. Which is not healthy.
