I have a female RES that weighs 1lb 9oz and I feed her Omega One pellets. She begs all the time, of course, so I was wondering how many pellets I should feed her per day. I also occasionally feed her freeze dried shrimp and meal worms. She doesn't eat leafy greens.

Hello ,

Use the 2/3's head rule for protein . Not counting the neck. What could fill 2/3's her head if it were empty. Don't let the begging get to you , they are good at that. Try and vary foods , sticks , worms , blends , etc ... for a more balance diet not just one type. Omega One is very good.
Doesn't eat veggies? She should be at 70% her diet with vegetable matter.
