No, he's not poisonous. And yes there are differing head shapes that can help clue you in, although there are some non-venomous that can look pretty daunting too!
See if this link works for you.. It's a great picture tutorial.
Awesome. Thanks! It was definitely a Rat Snake. I normally leave them alone because we do have an issue with field mice. Or, we did last year. I had just never seen a teenaged one, only full grown adult so I had no idea that's what I was dealing with, that slide show helps a lot. Next time, it will just be re-homed. Finding it in my coop just sorta shocked me at first and that pisses me off. Me ****** off=he had to die. Period.
She's cute! can't wait to meet her!
Davy Jones' locker in my lake-
This summed up my experience with James, 100%.
go Peggy! #teampeggyoneleg
I had the flu for about 2 days, not really sick sick..,.just achy and coughy. But DH has had it for over a week now. He has lost 7 pounds this week. Went to doctor and found out his diabetes is all over the place. I'm sure that's why its taking him longer to get better.
hope he gets to feeling better soon! Illnesses that make healing from common ailments are no fun at all. Glad you are feeling better!
I've not shared here with you guys.. Lost my sweet kitty Billy last night. Looked like his neck was broken.. We had had him for almost nine years and he had just turned nine last month. Best kitty and mouser I've ever had.
sorry for your loss! 9 years is a long time. he looks like he was a happy kitty!
I'm planning on bringing a dozen blue am eggs for trading. I would like some of those RIR eggs and some orps if anyone is bringing any of those. I can bring some of the AM/Australorp eggs that gave me my OE if someone wants some of them, not sure I'll get a dozen between now and then though....
I'm sure by Orps you mean 100% Orp(?).
I'll be bring some eggs for Kat but with James around, I'll have no way of knowing whether they're BO/BO or BO/EE crossed.
I may have a couple of Black Marans eggs, but again, they'll either be crossed with a BO or a EE. I'll try to get to a dozen and they're free to whomever wants some. Never hatched eggs & I have no idea how to tell if fertilzed without cracking it open. I've seen many that were fertilized that way, right before I eat them.
glad this question was answered today! Perfect timing, too. I logged in to ask this very question. I started collecting eggs today again since I just dewormed a couple weeks ago. I know the withhold period is 7 days from last dose for this one, but I always do 10 JIC.
