I have a few that would eat them without a fuss, but I didn't have the patience to properly convert all of my girls to them. I still have some ~15-20g links in the freezer, but I just don't feel like bothering really. Like hairless mice, they're prone to substrate sticking to them unless you take the time to really dry them off. Otherwise I had great success with feeding them to the ones that would eat them without scenting, and saw remarkable growth in at least the one female. At this point I'll stick to slitting mice if I want efficent growth, though.

Just to add to the discussion for anyone new coming across this thread - Rat Snakes (Corns are Rat Snakes) can take MUCH larger prey than you would imagine. I find it hard to believe any baby Corn could not eat a day old pink, were they available. They are pretty "stretchy".

As far as wild corns go, I am sure they will eat whatever they overpower. I couldn't believe when I saw a baby Copperhead eating a Cicada sometime back (in pictures).

Yep, I hatched a barely 3g Amel this year and after a couple half-pink feedings she had no trouble with day olds and quickly caught up to my other holdbacks.
