    Took a few pics of the naked necks while feeding.I had a snake get into my baby chicks and lost some showgirl babies and one of my naked neck/turken babies that I hatched from ebay eggs.What color do you think this little fellow will be?[​IMG]

    How big of a snake was it to have eaten more than one chick?!! I'd freak if I went in my coop and found that sight! I'm not snake phobic, but I can't imagine losing my birds like that. Sorry about that.

    No clue either! I have never seen a live snake other than at pet shops and the zoo. Our environment just doesn't suite their needs.

    I have no idea how big he was.Went down to check on all the birds before bed and noticed the door was cracked open just slightly but enough for a snake to slither in.I'm just glad that I didn't open the brooder and see him laying there.They don't bother me if I know they are there and I'm not in a tight space.Just don't want to be surprised and closed in.

    Has anyone got naked necks from the legendary Duane Urch Red Naked neck LF birds. Thinking about getting some next spring. Are they good and are they big for a naked neck?
