I bought this female from a small want to be breeder who was getting out. I’m told she has already ovulated but not had a prelay shed. They fed her large/jumbo live rats weekly in the time they had her. I feel like she’s a bit on the hefty side and planned to reduce the size of food she gets and possibly frequency as well (after she lays probably). She’s 3200ish grams, no info on age, bred with 3 males, supposedly very gravid and waiting on a prelay.
I kept contact with the seller (as they requested, plus I like to at least let them know when the animal eats the first time) and they said they didn’t see a lump. I only have smalls and pups rn since my supplier didn’t have anything bigger and had given her 2 smalls (just a little bigger than a pup, maybe weaned) f/t. I was then told she would get very upset/aggressive because she wouldn’t be full.
I feel like she’s a bit heavy and plan to give smaller meals weekly until she lays and shortly after start spacing out. I’ve always been told and read that an adult female should never need anything over a MD rat every 2 weeks if she’s healthy. Does this sound good or is she fine as is?
