    recently had another chicken snake attack. I have killed 5 large ones this summer apparently there are more. Anyway it ate all the fertile eggs one of my broodies was sitting on plus 1 GOLF BALL.

    Do you reckon the golf ball will kill it or will it be able to regurgitate it???

    Thanx,

    We had a chicken snake too. We filled white easter eggs with sand and a few days later the snake ate it. My husband found him under the nest boxes and he was a little slower. I don't think he was feeling very good. He had a huge bulge in the middle of him where that egg was. I do think that golf ball will eventually kill it.

    The golfball should be the snake's demise.

    O K I just woke my old man up to ask him the answer to this question. He is a expert on snake's with more than 40 year's experience. The snake is going to die. The snake felt the heat from the hen is why it ate the golfball. We have heard of a snake owner changing a light bulb used for a heat source laying the bulb in the cage and after returning with a new light bulb the snake had eaten the light bulb. Surgery saved that snake.

    Just another reason why the DW should let you golf. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry you lost your eggs hon. I'm glad the snake ate the golf ball! Just wish he would have eaten it first and then gone away to digest.
