    I have a diamond about 16 months old possibly older
    Iv'e read not to feed them weekly
    So now I feed him about every fortnight on adult mice
    Is this adequate?

    Cheers

    try to change it over to feeding on rats as it may be harder
    to do when it gets older and it will be cheeper in the long run.
    It should be big enough to handle a weaner to small rat

    Hey Beeman,
    He's on rats also it's just that my supplier did'nt have the next rat stage at the time. And I thought the next size up would be a bit of a stretch lol. Same with my Bredli luckily they go for both

    I got the information from a feeding pamphlet, that stated diamonds should be fed every 2-3 weeks. Is it to do with DPS?

    We feed our diamonds evey 10 to 14 days and they do fine.
    It great that you have them on both feed types
