I finally got rid of that big chicken snake!!! It was a little cruel, but my baby chicks were going to be the third dinner course after all the eggs that snake swallowed....so I had to do what I had to do...we won't go into detail.....anyway, the girls are happy again sitting on some freshly laid eggs...and the two baby chicks are happy scratching in the mud. It's scarey what we'll do to protect our chickens!!! Us "city cousins" would visit our Grandparents farm in the summer.....and we thought it was great fun to gather all the eggs in the hay barn....blow out the egg and then throw them at our uncles when they would pass by to start the milking.....boy were we surprised when we were marched to Grandma with a lecture about eggs being valuable food! I guess we learned our lesson!! Now I kill snakes that try to get my eggs! Better watch out!
