Seth has some valid points, but I am convinced that diet plays a huge role in it as well. A varied diet is essential. A strictly rodent diet just isn't good enough. In the wild these snakes are omnivores so I try to simulate a natural diet as closely as I can.
I have fed my indigo's mice, rats, chicks, quail, fish and road killed snakes.
It has sure made a big difference with my animals. As much as I'd like to take credit for this idea, I can't. Another breeder who shall remain nameless shared this with me a couple of years ago and I am grateful to him!
