Corn snakes and eggs

Is it alright to give an occasional chicken egg to an adult corn (like once a month)? And if so would it be better to let the egg warm up to room temp before giving it to them, or even making it a little warmer than that? Just something that crossed my mind today.

HI
There is no benefit to feeding a corn snake chicken eggs.
Also
The corn snake would have to be HUGE and/or the chicken egg very small. An opportunistic corn snake might eat an egg in the wild but its not their common prey item.
There are lots of snakes that have a special anatomy to pop or crush a egg after swallowing it whole, some of which I keep, but corn snakes are not one of them. I don't bother since there is no additional nutritional benefit.

Gotcha, thank you very much! Are there any other food items besides feeder mice that can supplement a corn's diet?

Feeder rats of course also you can get day old chicks from the frozen Mice/Rat suppliers like Big Cheese Rodents and Mice Direct.
