how many breeding pairs do u have? and how many snakes? how often do you feed the rodents to everybody? I'm trying to figure out if I need to get more breeding pairs. I have 3 ferrets, 3 ball pythons (silver dollar size at biggest body part) and a baby cornsnake.

I have 3 ferrets, 1 ball python and a cat and have 14 breeding females, I don't breed back to back, I give a 10 day break between litters. The BP eats 2-3 mice a week when he's eating, the cat gets 3-5 a day, usually once or twice a week and the ferrets get mice every 10 days and usually eat about a dozen or more. I've got a good amount going now but when I started I had 7 ferrets and couldn't keep up for anything. I'm going to add more and add rats but I'm breeding to sell now as well and plan on adding more snakes down the line.
