Don't get me wrong, I love having chickens... But I could most certainly live without the chicken snake! I just caught #5 dining on my day's bounty. My husband wasn't home, so I retrieved my AWESOME neighbor to deal with the foul thing. Unfortunately, he was having trouble finding his ammunition, so this one managed to slither away. I'm sure we'll catch him in the act again soon, so no worries. In the meantime, we're working on plans for a new, more snake-proof coop!
