That certainly can work Frank....I think I will try it next year.
Thanks for the tip.

Also....I did say that was how it was taught (told) to me over the years.....and this method does work about 90% of the time.
I never said it was fact......Since I have not witnessed any of this in the field. It is fact that it works for me in captivity.

Frank....Do you think all the hatchlings from one clutch in the wild feed readily on prey items? Or do some die of starvation?
I know some do not make it due to the fact they are eaten by predators....but do the ones that avoid predators all make it in the wild?
See.....We as captive breeders are trying to have a 100% hatch rate and 100% rate of hatchlings making it into adulthood. This does not happen in the wild....or does it? Just a guess...it does not.....
