Advertisement Hey guys. I've got a question about power feeding since some of my co-keepers here say that they feed their Ts once a week for it to have a longer life. However, I've been power feeding my slings (2-3 newly hatched red runners every three days) since I've read that slings usually power feed in the wild for them to outgrow the delicate stage of being a sling. My question is, at around what size should I stop power feeding my slings? And if I've already started power feeding them, would it lead them to having a shorter lifespan? Thanks for your thoughts!
