I had just let my 10 week old pullets out for a little free ranging when one came running up with something hanging out of her beak. At first I thought it was a big earth worm but when I looked closer I realized that it was a tiny snake. She was beating it against the ground, probably trying to break it into bite-sized pieces. I was rather amazed because I've never seen snakes around here. Should I have taken it away from her? I kind of figured that chickens generally know what is edible and what isn't and left her to it.
