    No! Donít force feed it. You shouldnít even be breeding animals with this kind of ignorance, itís a great responsibility and you should have done your research before ever starting on this project, it sounds like they will probably all die, but with internet search engines, you should be able to read hundreds of pages about breeding balls pythons properly.

    It is probably too late for them, but you could at lest do some research now!

    If you read from the beginning I did not breed this snake, I bought it and the seller did not think that it was gravid but 2 weeks after owning her she laid eggs.

    I came here to ask for help throughout this process if you donít have any information that can help me then donít waste my time.

    I knew from day 1 that these eggs didnít have much of a chance since I was not expecting it, my local reptile shop told me to leave them in the tub with the female. Maybe I should of. I do regret cutting the eggs at day 53 but even if I waited and risked losing more eggs, at day 53 and only weighing 18 grams I donít thing another 5 days would of made a huge difference.

    I never said force feed I said assist

    And here is an older thread I was reading with smaller hatchlings where just about everyone had to assist feed
