first thing snakes do when they lay eggs is shedding cause the skin is too big:) so not eating is common:) after the shed you should offer small preys at first(she is still recovering) not too often, once in about 5 to 7 days is ok...after she ate a couple off times and pooped(sometimes even shedding) then you can start feeding her as you used to, cause then she has recovered from the laying process
so dont try to put on weight in the first weeks...just small preys and let het recover
:Banshee laid 12 eggs on 4-13-03. (5 duds) I offered her some very small rat pinks imediately. She refused, and has continued to refuse. She finally shed today and ate a juevenile mouse! I only had one to offer her as it was not feeding day so I don't have any thawed. When I saw the shed I pulled a juevenile mouse I had been saving for a future breeder, dislocated it and tossed it into her.
:So~ Now that I finally got her to eat again. I am in the habbit of feeding every 5 to 7 days, but do you think I should offer her something every 3 days for a while just to bring her back up to wieght? She is suprisingly not much underwieght, but I'd like to see another 40 to 50 grams on her just to get her back to pre-breeding wieght.
