I have a female corn I bought early summer this year that is around 3ft and will reach her third year this spring. I was hoping to breed her BUT I’ve been told a female corn needs to ideally be at or above 300 grams before attempting to breed. As of today this girl is at 151g. When I last weighed her in July she was 115. So she is gaining but not overly fast. Right now she gets one fuzzy rat a week (and sometimes pinky rats if one of my other snakes doesn’t want to eat).
I’m just wondering if by early to mid spring will she meet the weight requirement of 300 grams? If it doesn’t seem likely then should I up her food intake to two fuzzy rats a week (fed at two seperate days) or just give her another year to grow?
