Hello Jim,
Glad to hear that everything is going well. I usually have my females and males stop eating at some point. The females usually quit right before shedding, and then 9-14 days later they would lay eggs and go right back on feed. I was told not too feed the females too much or too large of rodents right after laying. Too many feedings will possibly induce a second clutch and you may or may not want that, and too large of items may lead to lumpy fat deposits instead of fattening her up all the way around. Don't know how true all that is, but just to be careful i don't feed too much or too large for a while after laying. Keep us informed on all your projects.
Have a good one,
Gregg
