I've seen snakes in the yard-- garter, king, etc.. but not one of this size, nor one near my coop and run. It's about 4 1/2 feet long. It was in the drive, headed in the direction of the chickens. I don't have any chicks or bantams, so I'm wondering if it had bad intentions with the larger birds? Would be strange. I am, however, expecting perhaps one chick (by my broody) in a day or so.
What to do? I like snakes... don't really want to kill it... I think doing that illegal anyway yes? It's out of sight now, but if it returns, any opinions would be great. Thanks!
