I do not have much experiance with snakes, but;
A friend had a Ball that would not feed for quite sometime, he tried
different types of mice, live and pre-killed and no go. I gave him a
pre-killed quail chick and the animal fed right away. After the animal fed on
the quail the first time his feeding picked up, and they were able to feed
him mice after that.....never had another feeding problem.
Some lizards I've had who were slow feeders always went for quail. They
(quail) have a lot of stink/scent to them, maybe that is the big turn on.
I don't know of anyone who would sell just one quail to try....If you can't
find one and want to try it; I only know of a place; minimum order is 100
chicks(25cents each). If you'd like their adresss Email me.
