No, you are definitely correct. When I had my piceus, he did not fare very well if fed large mice, or more than one small adult mouse at a time. He would almost invariably regurgitate. I fed him one small adult mouse a week, and that seemed to do the trick.
The whipsnake seems to do be the same way, though it will eat two or more rat pups at a time if given the opportunity. I would almost say that I prefer those over the mice too, and the snakes don't complain.
