ok ball python breeders what do you consider to be the optimum feeding regimen? I do not want to over feed but still want optimum growth. Right now I am on the typical appropriate sized rat once a week routine.

Typically, once a week but hatchling females get smaller meals every 3-5 days and post-lay girls every five days.

Once a week is fine... if they'll take it.

I had several today decide not to eat, thankfully the boas aren't picky!

I would recommend one appropriately sized rodent 1x per week. I feed every 7-10 days for adults and every 5-7 days for babies.
