Default How much to feed 1yr old corn snake?

Mines currently wolfing down 3 pinkies and looking at me like MORE! afterwards. Wondering if I should upgrade to small mice, but not too sure?

Just he's got such a little head. ...

It all depends on the size of the snake... my 6 month mexi black king is getting down 3 fuzzys every week... but just go with the size of the snake.. if he is big enough for fuzzies then get him on them... dont jump straight from pinkies to small mice tho...
