1 Day Old Pinkies

Postby Jaredr » Fri Jul 04, 2014 10:33 am

Good Morning

I purchased 1 Day Old Pinkies Sunday afternoon to feed this coming weekend. One problem though...I misplaced them and happened to find them Monday afternoon...wait for it...IN MY CAR!!! :smt021

They have changed colour from pink to a slight purple, poor buggers look like they got a beating!!!

Would these be safe to feed to my ATB's, White Lips and Copperhead?

Its safe to say that you can feed those to your dustbin, nothing but maggots should be eating those anymore.

Its not advisable as you could give your snake "food poisoning".
I have made that mistake once, and lost a very valuable snake because of it.
Its not worth the risk.
