Default Feed Schedule for 1-2 yr old

Last Friday was Storm's 1st Birthday! She is now one years old,. Unfortunately I was not home to celebrate it with her. ;(

I was just wondering what is the general feed schedule for 1-2 year old red-tails? I have her switched to rats now. The last time I fed her was on Feb 11th. She is currenting deep in the blue so I did not attempt o feed her (I have been out of town). So I'm waiting for her to complete shed cycle before feeding her.

I'll measure her then but last I measured her was at 27 inches.

Once a week. It'll be once a week til she's like 4 years old. Then it'll go to every two weeks. Or you could just feed her the day after she poops. Either way.

I feed Lucy every two weeks. She's like three feet now. I will even feed her when she's in blue; she has never given me an issue with it.

I agree with snuffles...feed the day after they poop! Once they have room in there they want to hunt! (and be careful of thy hands!)
