    More info would be helpful. How old is your snake? How big? How long has she been eating 3" mice? Will she take multiple mice for a single meal?

    She's probably 18 months old and almost 3' long. I've been feeding her 3" ones since I had her (1 year). I've never tried multible feedings.

    If she's almost 3' then you should be able to feed her small rats, but I wouldn't jump directly from one to the other. I'd give her a couple of feedings of rat fuzzies or weanlings, then a couple feedings a little bigger, and then go to the small rats.
