Corns are no different, in fact if anything grow faster. Here's the thing. You are doing what worked for you. But that does not mean its the only way. As you learn to be successful, you can then learn to be more successful.
Think about this, baby snakes are food for everything, insects, toads, birds, lizards, other snakes, mammals, etc. They want to grow as fast as they can. The longer they are small, the lower the changes of ever becoming an adult. Consider, 98% of all neonates, do not make it to adult size. Only the lucky ones that found enough food to out grow the neonate stage, make it. The saying only the strong survive, is a bit off. It may be true over the long period, thousands of years. On a year to year basis, its more about the lucky ones who make it. The ones that happen to land in the right conditions.
To be accurate, in your conditions that's what your cornsnakes did. That is true. But, under my conditions that same cornsnakes would have grown much faster. In nature, the lucky ones, grow even faster then mine. Please understand, its not anything against you, your at a stage where you can go to the next level of understanding, or not. Either way, you do seem to care and that is what is important.
An example, I had a wild free roaming snake come to my building and eat 4 to 6 mice, 16 days in a row. hmmmmmmmmmmmm and it did it by its own accord. And this type feeding occurred with many species. Best wishes
