Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What type of eggs are these (not BGE's either :O)?

    I'm not going to lie on this one: if they are indeed non-poisonous, then I'd either put them in a tank and let your kids watch them, or just let them go. I'd much rather have snakes around my house eating rodents and pests, then having rodents or pests around. Not to mention that playing with snakes is a requirement for being a kid. I live in Florida, and we have black racers in our yard. My wife hates them, and to be quite honest, they freak me out sometimes, but I know they're eating the fruit rats (and I KNOW I can't stand them) and other things I don't like. Leave em be or cage 'em!

    Box turtle eggs are more round and they usually bury them in mud.  I still have not seen a size on these posted but I believe either snake or possibly lizard depending on size.

    my guess is milk snake. with winter we had i would have thought the snake population would be down but my yard is way overpopulated with water snakes this year

    I agree with yzzi, if it is a Black Snake they are harmless and eat rodents.

    **Update**

    Not sure what happened.  After work yesterday, I go to peek at the eggs to see what is going on.  Something messed with them like someone stepped on them.  The dog was up and hardly goes to that area of the yard (due to the narrowness of from house to woods (inside of the wood line is the invisible fence)). 

    So now I am at a real loss and a little bummed.  I had intentions on watching these until hatched hopefully seeing what exactly they were. 


    Thanks,

    Matthew

    @konablue50‌ interesting fun fact on the egg layer thing. Do venomous give live birth then? All I can tell ya is there is a boat load of snakes out here.
    yes indeed, pit vipers give birth to live babies and are lethal at birth :)
