I went put first thing this morning and bought the most lovely corn snake. I asked when it required feeding and she said it was actually today. So with that I bought some (pinkies?) small mice things.
I fed it two this morning. Tonight when inspecting it in her new home I opened the glass doors to find the moist awful smell. Then I noticed what looked like the pinkies stuck together as if it has been brought back up. Is this normal? Should I feed it again or leave it for a week or two?

Many thanks once again folks

I would wait. The store should have told you to let the snake get use to it's new home before feeding it. I would have asked the store to feed it before making the purchase to be sure the snake is eating.

Joy,
Whoever told you to feed the animal (snake) the same day you brought it home needs to do a little bit of homework on the care of reptiles.

Regardless of what "day" it is supposed to be fed, a newly acquired snake (or any reptile) should be allowed a minimum of 5 days to acclimate to its new enclosure. This is also very stressful to many new reptiles (handling, new enclosures, heat gradients, etc).
Barring any medical conditions, your newly acquired snake regurgitated its meal due to extremely high stress levels.
When a snake regurgitates, it also expels most of its "gut flora" (several bacteria needed to aid in the digestion process); and it usually takes approximately 5-7 days for a reptile to accumulate the needed amount of gut flora once it regurgitates.
Feeding a reptile that has regurgitated its meal too soon after the event will ultimately lead to the animal regurgitating the secondary meal.

I would recommend that you provide water and allow your new pet a solid 5 days or so before handling it. Let it get used to its new surroundings/environment. After one full week, try feeding it again. (It won't starve, really).
Good luck!

Yeah Like the previous two posts, it was very stupid for the pet store to tell you to feed the snake that soon.
Now wait four or five days. Leave the snake alone for at least that long. Don't handle him. Let him get used to his sorroundings. Then after the four or five days put a pinky in his enclosure and leave him alone again for at least two days (but check to see if he ate, if not remove the pinkie and throw it away)
Also How big is the snake? If it is a new hatchling, 2 pinkies are too much. that could be why it regurgitated. Also temperature is very important. 80 degrees is good for proper digestion. So it could have been one or all the reasons stated (stress, too much food, temp)
Your snake can go about a month without food and you wouldn't need to worry much.
Since you are new you should buy a book called "The Cornsnake Manual", By Kathy Love (www.cornutopia.com)
It is a great book!

I re-fed this morning early and its kept the one pinkie down and also been to the toilet. Thanks for the advice, perhaps a bad pinkie or just 2 was too much. Will feed one per week from now on
Many thanks again Joy

How old is your corn? When I got mine she was two months old and on a feeding schedule of one pinkie every three days (which she usually ate with gusto).
After a few weeks when she grabbed my finger in her tiny mouth after eating a pinkie I knew it was time to start feeding her two per feeding. When she got big enough to start eating three pinkies per feeding (still on an every three days schedule), I moved her up to fuzzies.

Once she was big enough to start taking furries (next size up from fuzzies) I switched per to a once every five days feeding.
Once she starts taking adult mice she'll be fed once per week

You installed plumbing for your snake? That is a spoiled snake. But can it flush?
Sorry, I couldn't resist. :-p
