Day-Old Chicks (Chicken) 1 kg x 5 - Frozen Food for Snakes (Alternative to Mice)
At Raf Petfood, a store for reptile feed and whole prey for cats and dogs, we offer the highest quality frozen food for snakes—day-old chicken chicks, an excellent source of nutrition for your reptilian friend as an alternative to the typically served mice and rats for snakes. This ensures your pets, including corn snakes, pythons, and emperors, have a variety of feed, allowing for a diverse diet composition.
The day-old chicks for sale in our store come from our own hatcheries, from eggs laid by certified broiler hen layers. Frozen shortly after hatching and humanely euthanized, our day-old chicken chicks are packaged in hygienic containers and, thanks to modern dry ice shipping, retain all the essential nutrients crucial for the healthy growth and development of your snake.
Day-Old Frozen Chicks 35-40 grams — An Alternative to Mice in a Snake's Diet?
Day-old chicks are primarily known as whole prey food for cats and dogs, as well as food for hedgehogs and birds of prey. However, further research indicates that many species of snakes bred in homes would also feed on birds to some extent in the wild, alongside the typical snake food like mice, rats, and fish.
Day-old chicken chicks are also comparable to frozen mice, rats, and fish in terms of nutritional value, including protein, fat content, and the calcium to phosphorus ratio, and are slightly more caloric. Thus, they make an ideal component of the diet as feed for corn snakes and many other carnivorous reptiles.
Benefits of our frozen day-old chicks in a snake's diet:
- Freshness and quality: Each poultry chick is frozen immediately after hatching, ensuring the preservation of natural nutritional values and freshness.
- Safety: We carefully control each batch of chickens for quality and safety, to provide your snake with only the best and safest poultry pieces.
- Rich in protein and energy: Day-old chicken chicks are a quality source of protein and a good source of energy, making them a slightly more caloric food than fish, frozen mice, and rats for snakes of similar weight.
- Convenience in Use: Feed animals available at Raw Petfood are prepared for sale in a way that ensures convenience in storage and dosing. Small frozen chicken chicks are shock-frozen after manual selection, making them easy to fit in the freezer space. Removing individual pieces is not difficult, as our poultry pieces or any other snake feed is never stuck or frozen together.
Why our day-old chicks?
Our day-old chicken chicks are carefully and manually (not mechanically) selected. The cockerels serving as feed for snakes are treated by our staff with the same respect as the laying hens; at no stage do they have the status of waste, which can be encountered in other feed stores. Broilers from our hatcheries are carefully prepared, ethically euthanized, and frozen according to strict procedures to provide your pets with the highest quality snake food.
Our frozen day-old chicken chicks are the ideal choice for:
- Corn snake owners looking for a diversified feed tailored to their animals' needs.
- Reptile breeders wishing to provide their animals with the highest quality, full-value protein and energy source.
- Reptile enthusiasts looking for convenient, yet nutritious food for their pets.
