Well it happened. I walked out to coop Friday evening. I opened the first door and there lay a 5 1/2 foot snake. It was on its way to the hen house. I removed him. I noticed that my little pullets were all upset, they are in a brooder about 4 foot off the ground. I think he had tried to get in there, too big to go through the chicken wire. But he did get ahold of two. One, had a hurt wing, but appeared to be ok. The other did not appear to be hurt other than she holds her head off or nearly upside down. I am going to give her a day more or so, then put her down. She seems ok, when you hold her she is fine, doesn't seem to be hurting. She just looks strange. Any ideas? Oh, well I guess the bad comes with the good, there is one less snake to bother my hens/eggs though.
