Chicks for food

Is it ok for a snake to eat only chicks/chickens as opposed to only rodents?

for what reason are you wanting to feed chicks only? rats are more nutritious for snakes as far as I know. good luck,
MIKE

Stick with the rodents. Way better for the snake.

if you have a fat herp, they come in handy!
you can get chicks for about 3p each (if you buy 1000) so i see where your coming from! if only they were super nutritous chicks ::sigh::
dont chickens have lots of protein?

I say stick with rodents if you are able, they have far more calcium and nutrients than chicks do.
