It's just a preference. I could maintain their normal feeding schedule but I like mixing things up a bit. They're all a little older now so I know they can handle leaner winters. It can't be endless rats all the time. I know some breeders and keepers that don't feed their animals at all from November to March. I won't go to that extreme but a winter diet won't hurt any of them. I'll feed them smaller meals once a month. It'll also save me from ordering another round of feeders this year.
