I am interested to know if that snake will eat the BD eggs. Please post your results. I do know of certain mountain kings eating small infertile bird eggs.

Variable kingsnakes are generally a higher-elevation kingsnake than say a Cal king and other getula. Not that this means anything necessarily regarding whether they eat eggs or not. Variable kings are not large-bodied snakes like a Florida king for example. Often, variable kings (and other montane kings) will not feed much in the hotter months - Aug, Sep. So, my advice is to feed it more heavily now if it will accept it.
