    Me neither, especially since they don't have quite the same adaptation as the official "egg-eating snakes", though I know that hungry gopher snakes have been known to
    swipe chicken eggs from chickens... I just don't know how well they digest them?

    Do corn snakes digest the shells too, or do they find a way to crack & hack them up? And what kind of eggs are those, by the way? Quail?

    Alas, I've been "depriving" my corn snakes...

    Re: My Corn collection (pic heavy)

    Around here big black rat snakes love chicken coops. They eat the egg and the mice that eat the feed. I've heard of corns spending a lot of time in trees so I figured they might be raiding the nests of small birds. most of my snakes also love chicks and quail so I figured eggs aren't that far off and worth the try.

    Three of my corns and a king all took eggs on their first attempt. Two others ate them on the second attempt when I put the eggs in a pile with f/t hatchlings. I'll test more of my corns when breeding season passes.

    These are eggs from button quail that I breed. I also have and abundance of coturnix and chicken eggs I'm going to try on larger snakes like the retics. Once the egg got several inches down (about an inch past the last photo) there was a very audible crunching sound as the egg broke. It looks like maybe half the shell got digested and half expelled in her waste.

    Re: My Corn collection (pic heavy)

    After making it through this whole thread I am 100% rethinking my plans of a BP or possible Boa. My wife likes the more colorful snakes and I think corns are about as colorful as they get! Maybe get another corn. Diablo has gone 20+ for me so far, so another one would take me quite a ways!

    Overall, I think corn snakes are the BEST pet snakes...besides their colorful beauty, they're SO much easier to keep & care for...they eat year-round, need far less heat
    in their cage, & make great display animals too since they enjoy & use their branches. Combine that with a docile nature: they can be defensive as tiny hatchlings,
    but their teeth are too small to feel, & then by the time they are big enough to even FEEL their teeth, they're generally calm pets. I like their curious nature too.

    And 67temp, your collection is truly AMAZING! Thanks for sharing & causing so much snake-envy.

    Of the 9 snake species I keep I would have to say the corns are the most stress frees ones. Followed very closely in second place by the African house snakes.
