    I am not one to kill but when my husband pulled that snake out of their house... AND it had to die!!! He should of never messed with my Lola.

    She was a precious, very tame 8/9 week old ancona call duck... who loved her peas
    I only have a baby pic I haven't taken any since they started feathering (she is the one in the middle)

    That's Awful!! Did you hang it from the coop door as a warning to all reptiles?

    Poor baby ducky. That really sucks. I hate snakes.[​IMG]

    So so sorry for your loss. BUt I have to say, I was happy to hear you killed the snake. I'm not a fan of killing either, but this a clear case of defending your family.

    olf, I am so sorry to hear you lost Lola, I leave blk snakes alone unless they are a threat to the chickens and ducks, Hopefully they are dining on the mice and rats and will continue to leave everyone else alone. again so sorry [​IMG]
