Hello every one at back yard chickens. About 2 months ago i had a 5ft snake get in my coop and try to swallow 3 of my prized white silkies and ended up sufocating them in the process. Wich i walked in on at night while going to check on them and i killed the beast. I never knew it would try to eat a full grow chicken the size of a very exspensive coffe pot im talkin one that can hold 10 cups worth of water. Now I am down to 1 white silkie rooster and 2 black silkie hens, and at night i put them in a protected hutch so nothing can get to them. DO ANY of you know anything i can put out to deteroate snakes from coming neer my coop or yard. I had two guineas and they were shaking when i came into the coop becase they were so frightened of the snake. Please some on post back i need help.
