I'm planning on getting my first snake really soon (a jungle python), been doing lots of research (thanks aussie pythons members your knowledge has been really valuable), but I can’t seem to find much on the possibility of feeding live bird. I’m happy to feed thawed mice/rats (not keen on raising) but would like to raise quail for my snake. I understand the risks of feeding live mice/rats but is this the same for live birds? Is there any risk to my snake in feeding live quail/young chicken? Or should I do the dirty work first? If considered safe for my snake, theoretically how quickly could a jungle kill a bird or is it more humane (for the bird) if I do it? I’ve read that nutritional a purely quail diet is acceptable, but could you feed quail for the snakes lifetime? Considering how small they are, would you have to feed more in a sitting or more often? Or move to juvenile chickens? Thanks in advanced.
