Kings are always hungry and it is easy to overfeed them, so resist and let them run about instead of stuffing them every time they display a feed response. Feed them once a week a couple of fuzzies like your doing then a hopper once a week, then a mouse once a week. Much more will result in a fat king which might have a lesser life span, so keep an eye on its girth to avoid overfeeding and although it will always look for food, they have nothing better to do in the little cage their in.

Snakes sheding more often then usual is a sign of a growth period or stress, so review the environment and if humidity and temps are good for the species, then perhaps it is just a growth period as this is spring. Good luck.
:any help/advice!
