These guys advising you are absolutely correct. You can grow a a baby corn (or king, bullsnake, etc.) to adulthood in 12 months.
Get that baby on fuzzies then hoppers as soon as you can. Then the growth will blow your socks off. It is almost impossible to over feed a growing colubrid. (I say almost, cause if you really worked at it, you maybe could!) Corns especially are designed to eat relatively large prey. Get a copy of Kathy Loves cornsnake book. There is a photo of a corn that successfully ate a rodent which appeared to weigh the same as the snake. I truly believe that those pet stores that advise feeding pinkies at a substandard rate do so to make more $$. Pinkies are relatively expensive, but easy to produce.
A growing, thriving MBK can shed monthly for the first year.
