    This afternoon I was fixing to walk into the chicken pen to gather eggs, and right before I stepped in I had a weird feeling that I was about to see a snake or something! I don't think anything about it and start gathering eggs. Then I look at the next nesting box and I see a snake tail! I scream "DADDDDD A SNAKEEEEEEE!" So then my dad trys to get it out of the chicken pen, but it goes under the wall and into the feed shed and we couldn't find it. [​IMG]
    He had eaten all of my eggs except 9! UGH! I'm so Mad and Angry! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks, I will try to be very careful!
    I'm just glad it was a Bull Snake, instead of a Rattle Snake!

    The only venimous snakes we have around here are Rattle Snakes. [​IMG]
    The good thing with rattlers is that they give you a warning, with other venimous snakes they don't do that. [​IMG]

    They don't always rattle before they bite​
