In Reply to: Starting babies on pinkies, simple process. posted by Mike Stefani on December 22, 2002 at 10:13:00:

: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
