that's it. i am not gathering the eggs anymore or at the very least for a while. 3 chicken snakes in 7 days may just be my limit. especially since i stuck my hand in the nesting box with one of our guests. the guest on the left had 3 eggs (2 of which were ceramic)in his belly. i guess he thought it was an all you can eat buffet. his friend only had one. how do i know that you ask? because my one day vet, cameron, squeezed them out to inspect. oh boys!
