Just out of curiosity, how often does everyone feed their snakes? A regular schedule? When they go on the "prowl"?
A certain day each week? Each two weeks?
Mine would usually be every Saturday, but my work schedule won't always let me. So, a week to ten days here.
Just curious to see how others do!

My only opportunity to feed my snakes is on the weekend, so I usually get them mice every Saturday. If one does not eat, it just skips a week.

Assuming I have mice on hand, I tend to offer food once a week or when there's been a noticable change in behaviour (i.e., on the prowl). If the food item is refused, I wait 5-7 days before offering anything again, assuming there isn't an external reason for the refusal, such as an oncoming shed.
My snakes are both relatively young, 18 and 6 months old respectively; as they get older I expect to be feeding them less often than that.

A week to 10 days here, as well. A couple of my snakes preferred to eat at every other offered feeding, so they're on a 2 week cycle now. That's my borneo short-tail and my pueblan milksnake.

Such is the nature of having a sucky rotating schedule at my job.

Mine is roughly a week apart,,if I have a picky feedeer who is currently feeding (My Royals) I may offer every 5 days, so as to get as much food in them as poss, while they are feeding LOL. If anyone misses a feed the just get offered next week.

My corn were on a ten day schedule. When i got them they were picky eaters. My red tail once a week. Now that My corns have gotten use to being here. Last week the snow grabbed the mouse out of my hand. F/T of course. set them out to thaw before work feed them when i get home.
Every three days when Jool the corn was a baby on pinkies

Every five days now that she's on furries
Weekly once she starts on adult mice
my ball python eats every thursday and sometimes a smaller mouse in between.i think he would eat everyday if i gave it to him.

I try to feed my three corns one mouse each every 7 days, but lately it's been more like every 10 days. After reading others' responses, I don't feel so bad, 'cause it seems like a lot of corns are on 10-day schedules. Occassionally, if the pet store has been out of mice for awhile, I'll double-up and give them two mice each. Only one of the corns (a male named Pearl) ever balks at a second, and my skinny female is always happy to pick up the slack and eat three so I don't have smelly mice around the house.
Tah tah.
