    What day do you feed and is there any particular reason you feed on that day?

    I feed every five days or so, unless he/she is in shed mode. As he/she matures I will slow it down to about a feeding every 10 days.

    I generally feed legless kids on Sundays because it's an easier day to coordinate all that. The rest of the week I'm feeding kids, cats, dogs, fish, and cresties. And occasionally me.

    Every 5 days is a bit much for a boid, Raj. Boids have slow metabolism and the maximum you should feed your BP is every 7 days. If fed too often, they will not have enough time to absorb all they can get from their meals and this can affect their growth.

    I feed all of my baby/yearling boids every 7 days......yearlings and up every 10-14 days......I feed my baby colubrids every 5 days.

    I feed thursdays because at least that way if I need to go out of town for a weekend I know my guy has eaten (well, he hasn't eaten yet but when he does it will be on a Thursday by God.) Plus the only time I have to feed is after 8PM and if I were going out of town for a weekend I'd be gone by 8PM

    Hmmm....I was doing this cause the BP.net care sheet says to do so every 5 days. But the little guys is just an inch over two feet now so I guess I will slow down. May wanna tell Godsy about the caresheet deal!

    Yeah, 5 days is too much for any boid. 7 days is just right.
