I would imagine that loading more than one snake would be a challenge.

A dove tray only give push the birds. It purpose is to make a quick appearance of the bird. It would most likely cause a snake to strike at you, depending how you have the tray set or it is being held. Of course practice and training of yourself and the bird is required.

I would think doves are the only bird that can be used with this prop.

I have used all sorts of things in my dove trays. as part of my got ideas lecture I show how to use everything from a deck of cards to a water bottle.
spring snakes should be fine. however you will need to figure out and experiment with how they need to be loaded and how you hold the dove tray for the release.

look into chance wolfs spring snakes. I forget the name of them but you can put them anywhere and produce them easily with out any other additional device.


one tip on the dove tray is what ever you produce from it- give a little lift of the tray right before you release this allows a little more spring to the production.

any questions let me know glad to help.
