Definitely...2-3 months can be just a normal phase that alot of adult corns will go through. When it turns into 6+ months, there can be cause for concern. However, from what I have heard and seen, depending on the seasons and where that corn is in its life, it may not be uncommon for them to take a month or two off.
I have a reverse okeetee that was a revenous feeding its first year of life. Then its second year, it would feed one and then refuse food for the next two months as though he wasnt even the least bit hungry. Now in his third year of life he feeds pretty regularly. Still I am never suprised when he turns down a meal cause it will just happen with him. If he is fine with it, so am I
As far as corns less than a year old, it begins to become a serious problem when they turn down food for more than a month. The corn may live for several months without eating, but once you break that no food for a month period, it is really time to start trying to figure out what is wrong.
