eating

Since 2 out of 3 snakes have refused food for the past 3 weeks, due to the change in seasons, i was just wondering how long i should wait to try to feed them again?

What kind of snakes are they?

You could thaw out one food item (if they all take roughly the same size food) and offer it to the non feeders first. If they take it, thaw more. If they don't eat it, give it to the feeding snake.

i have a ball python that's eating rats,(and continues to eat through the winter) and my cali king and BRB are eating adult mice. But i'm sure the BP wouldn't mind eating 2 mice instead That's a good idea. Thanks

I would never offer a ball that is eating rats a mouse, you may never get it to switch back or at least it could be a struggle
