Default Pinkies

My 3 month old milk. When should I expect to move from feeding him pinkies? I understand this maybe a 'how long is a piece of string' question but was just wondering

Its not possible to give you a time period or age to change up a size. At 3 months i would say about now is average but its not the age of the snake its the size and this varies just as much in the snake world as it does in the human one. They CAN eat an item upto 1.5× the size of its own largest point however playing safe i have always stuck to food items that are approx. The same size/circumfrance as the snakes largest point. I hope this helps

I increase or size up there food when a bump isn't visible after they've eaten it and never feed anything bigger than 1 and a half times bigger than the largest part of them. If you find a single pinky isn't leaving a bump any more but a fuzzy would be too big offer him two pinkies instead and after that doesn't leave a bump I would move onto fuzzies.
