    Just moved house, your views on feeding?!

    So, we've just moved house and with that, the BP's have had a sudden change with a new environment!

    The move is in the same village and all my BP's were kept in cosy bags tied and the end and transported in a nice dark box(es) on the front seat for very short time.

    Every one ate the weekend before so to make sure they had at least 7 days for digestion (with the exception of my newest arrival who's on about a fortnight due the delivery to me from breeder) before the change of scenery!

    So, with them now being in the new location for 6 days (Sunday as I type this), I was going to offer the younger ones a feed today but decided to hold off when seeing 2 of them in blue!

    And as I'm holding off, I thought to use the opportunity what your views are with first time feeding in a new home?

    I'm less concerned with the snakelets as all mine have been owned from snakelets and the scenario is the same as bringing them home for the first time. But the adults and sub-adults have me a little more concerned so I'm interested in your experiences.

    Thanks in advance .

    As Snow Balls said, it's not crucial- waiting another week is probably the best idea. Some may eat now, & probably be fine, but it won't hurt to wait either.

    Happy Landings in your new digs!

    Thanks for the advice all, and yeah, the boss of the house (the other half) has already told me where they're be ending up eventually. Need to design and build a custom viv / rack system, now!

    Moving is SUCH chaos! How well I know, I've moved many times in my life- & somehow no matter how well you plan things, you always have much more to do than you expected.

    Totally agree. Still have full boxes, bags of clothes and more of everything to sort our, and been here a week near enough!

    It's a mammoth task and not one I can claim to have enjoyed :/

    And our pets won't help with putting things away at ALL! They just want our attention & treats, no matter how tired we are.
