>>Yes, you can use shrimp or lobster shell and feed to mice but it will stink. Day old chicks work OK. A good way to color-um up is to have range chickens that eat bugs. You will notice that their eggs will have have orange yokes once they start to eat bugs. Beat one yoke with equal parts water and inject into dead mice.

As if mice wern't stinky enough already...

I have a friend with chickens - the yolks are indeed more orange than store-bought. I'd be willing to bet that fresh coop-raised eggs will have more nutriional content too boot.

Additional question - why not feed whole eggs? Provided the snake will eat them, this seems like a good option.

I wonder if scarlet snakes get redder when fed egg soup?

Seems like you are onto something that could have commercial value- maybe like a powdered supplement?

I nominate "ColorUm-Up" for your trade name.
