Look what I found the other evening when I was going out to close up my chicken coop... My question for the experts is, did we kill the female? The smaller one is the one my neighbor shot for me... All I could think about while I was waiting for my neighbor to show up was all the little baby copperheads that were gonna be in my yard in a couple of months. The last picture is one from a few days before... and that one is still alive somewhere around here... I can put up with the occasional rat snake and usually do... The only time I kill them is when I catch them eating my baby birds.
