There are many different species of snakes and each one has its own diet. Some snakes eat eggs while others do not.
Egg-eating snakes are found in a variety of different habitats from deserts to rainforests. These snakes usually hunt at night using their sense of smell to locate their prey. Once they have found an egg they will coil their body around it and squeeze it until the egg cracks open. They then swallow the egg whole shell and all.
Some of the most common egg-eating snakes are the garter snakes rat snakes and boa constrictors. These snakes are all non-venomous and pose no threat to humans.
Eggs are a nutritious food source for snakes providing them with protein and essential nutrients. If you have snakes in your area it is best to keep your chickens enclosed in a coop or pen to prevent them from becoming a meal for these predators.
