If your snakes not eating

If your snake has stoped feeding try baby chicks it worked for me who knows it mite work for you. After my snake took the chick I gave her a rat that I soaked in the same water as the chick was in she grabed it just like it was candy.

yeh. if you have a big python and you give it a rat then it clogs up the system so you give them a chick to loosin it up a bit.

If your snakes not eating take a hard look at your husbandry practices and the snakes natural history. Some snakes naturally stop eating, it's normal. Tricking it into eating baby birds may do more harm then good. Also in your suggestion you never mentioned what type of snake. Therefore you're implying that this is a good remedy for all snakes that are not eating. Again this may cause more harm then good. Chicks as laxatives, what's next?
