Starting babies on pinkies, simple process.

Hello
I find it very easy to get all of my babies as well as non-rodent feeding adult Garters on a rodent diet.

For babies with their first feeding I chop up a few pinkies and an Earthworm, place this "mash" in a shallow bowl with a few drops of water. Sit back and watch them go into a feeding frenzy!!!

Gradually with each feeding you use less Earthworm, before you know it they will be taking only chopped pinkies and growing like weeds!

I feed babies daily, once they are taking whole pinkies I cut back feedings to two or three times a week. Mike
