 Advice for Feeding Texas Rat Snake/New Snake owner.

Hi friends!
I’m new to snake keeping but I just wanted to make sure if I’ve been feeding my snake correctly. He was surrendered to my pet store I work at several months ago so we think he’s about 3 1/2 years old, I recently measured him and he’s about 5’5. Prior to adopting him I had researched how much to feed him and the general answer was to feed him once a week 1/2 mice a week (the previous family fed him once a month since he was a young snake so I’m not sure switching him over weekly has been the best idea). I’ve been feeding him 3 adult mice weekly and he usually poops within 2 days (hopefully thats fine and that I’m not over feeding him) Thanks! Any advice for me would be greatly appreciated :)
