Got some chicken parts and some hearts so will try that, I'm feeling confident that he will eventually take it, it will probably take a few tries but I'm willing to try

Was like a piece of Chicken Breast. Next time I'll try a part with some bone in it

Salmonella in 3... 2... 1...

Just kidding, this is a good alternative to rodents.

I know of a guy that rolls balls of mince and the snakes eat these, although the fat content hits their livers hard I assume and this could create health problems further on in a specimens life.

And yes they are all on permit.

Okay, I'm trying to get him on Chicken Hearts and Necks. He takes but doesn't actually swallow it yet, but he does the whole follow my hand routine and guards it like he does with rodents. If he took normal chicken meat he should take this so will try again when it's warmer. I also cleaned his cage as I thought maybe there were too many conflicting smells
