Remedies



This was the problem. A chicken SNAKE. I DO NOT like snakes.

This was the remedy. This is my little Browning 22 pistol. This was my second chicken snake I have killed with it. I bought it several months ago; it has already paid for itself, as far as I'm concerned.








While the snake was still curled in the nest, which this nest is on the ground and under a piece of plywood, and I shot it right where an egg was. Wierd to see egg yolk oozing out of the snake. Have I grossed everyone out? Not my intention. I'm just proud I can kill a snake with my pistol. It's too hard to use the rifle in the hen house.

Oh my, never heard of a chicken snake! Not sure if they are in AZ? I suppose any snake will eat eggs? I've always worried about meeting a rattler in my coop.

Gotta do whatcha gotta do to keep your chickens/eggs safe. I'm scared of snakes too. Thank goodness I've never ran into one in my coops... but I know the days coming, I look everytime I walk in. I need me one of those lil guns!

Not a big fan of them either. I've never heard of a chicken snake. Are they poisonous?

I don't like snakes either. Well, I don't like lots of things, haha; but snakes are right up there.

Congrats on getting it!
