Hi all,
Iíve always fed my snakes with mice and rats in different sizes.
In the last few months I had problems with my rodent supply. And Iíve found a good source of day old checks from a hatchery nearby.
I wanted to know if my snakes wouldnít suffer in the future from problems caused by lack of calcium.

I also found a good source of 12 days old chick, and Iím using them for feeding the larger snakes (these seem stronger and might have more calcium in their bones).

Any thought in that matter would be helpful.
Thanks.
Kith.
