    Well I bought a few of these little ones a week or so ago to feed my snakes. They are Comet Pullets ( atleast thats what I was told ). I've got these 3 left. and don't know if I want to feed them to the snakes or not. Do Comet Pullets lay good Eggs, and are they good to eat? if so how old do they need to be before u eat, or they ley eggs... Also can anyone tell if these are hens or roos

    I bet yer son loves those birds. You should keep em. Maybe the pythons will eat their eggs? Or do they just eat live food?
