Default Corn snake feeding advice

Hi All, just a quick one, all the reading i have done seems to advise upping my snakes feeding from 1 pinkie to 2 when it gets to 20", just want to clarify, is this 2 at the same sitting or 2 over the week, if its two at a sitting how quickly do i feed the 2nd one to it ?

Cheers, Conzo.

If I have smaller mice to use up I feed two at a time, as soon as one has gone down they should take the other straight away.

Give him the first one and wait for it to get a good way down his body then straight onto the next
