How can I keep the alpha female in my sorority from overeating? Every time I feed them, she snatches most of it up and then sports a very stuffed tummy... I'm afraid the other girls aren't getting enough to eat too!

Maybe take her out, feed her in her separate container, and then feed the rest of the girls?

Ah, had this problem a lot with my dominant girl.

Yoou can lead her away from the other girls with a piece of food and feed the others while she's preoccupied, or you can consider buying a breeder net and feeding her in that.

just feed each one individually by dropping a pellet right in front of each one to make sure they get it?
