All types of snake can be "bad" feeders. If you give a royal/ball( i prefer ball) the right enviroment etc it will feed as it should. Normally when small they will feed with gutso until they get to near adult when a lot of females will fast for a while. Males will fast as adults at breeding time, but it is just what they do, they are not bad feeders you just need to understand them.They can be easily stressed and folk can make them go off their food more by continuously trying different stuff all the time. You just need to be patient with them,let them do their thing all the time they are in good shape and not looking unhealthy.You would be better off getting one a few months or more old and about 300g and an established feeder as some can be a pain when hatchlings.
