You did not mention the species to which you are referring. It makes little difference as there is not need to rush into feeding any species of local snake that has just hatched. Recently hatch Sharp-tailed Snakes and Ringneck Snakes do not feed on pinky mice and our local Racer hatchling may feed on such but can be fed other items as well. That would leave hatchling Gopher Snakes which are found in good numbers this time of year. Neonated (newly hatched) Gopher Snakes need not have a meal before entering hibernation/brumation although many will secure a meal before the weather turns cool or cold. In an y case, there is no need to panic!!!

: I live in Corvallis and thought this may be the best place to get some help with this problem.
: I picked up a bunch of hatchlings last week and am being very unsuccessful getting them to feed on F/T pinkies. I need around a dozen LIVE day old pinkies NOW!! and am willing to drive to either portland or eugene to obtain them.
: All of our local pet stores are out and my mice are in between litters. Can someone PLEASE help me?
: Thanks, and i hope to make it to some meetings soon!
