    You may also try using the hardware cloth buried into the ground some around the perimeter of their yard.

    Actually, chickens should help get rid of snakes! At least around the pen. The snakes may try to get the eggs to eat, but normally the chickens fight back. Just make sure you watch where you're going and look before sticking your hand in the coop!
