If your burm is healthy she can probably go several months without food no problem. Many people who religiously feed every so many days freak out when their snake misses a feed. There is no need to fret. Give the snake a chance to get hungry, wait a week or so and try again.

Yeah, I agree with Jamster.

You are stressing the snake by trying to feed it so often, especially since it is a young snake.

What are you trying to feed it? And please post a picture and description of you enclosure. All these things could influence it not feeding.

I can say with 90% certainty that it's refusing because it has a preference for rats. Try a rat next feeding and it should take it without problems.

That's good news, thanks for the update.
She probably just wasn't hungry.
