Only one question I've thought of that isn't answered here. If/when one has one of those tiny little hatchlings, what is the cut off for being too small to eat even a newborn pink? And do you go by weight at hatch or weight after shed to make that determination? And what do you feed them? Pinky heads?
I've had babies as small as 4 grams eat a day-old "red."

I've also seen cornsnake hatchlings as small as 2 grams. They can eat pinky heads.

You can always cut a frozen pink or red to the appropriate size- either lengthwise or crosswise.
