    does that silly hen really think she can ingest that whole snake? It would probably fill her crop up and then some!

    My hens love to eat small snakes when they can find them.

    What about rattle snakes? We get a few around here in the summer and have to watch our step in certain areas. Are the hens savvy to snakes and avoiding their bite?

    My girls just walk right over em!!! [​IMG] Or keep them nice and warm in the nest during the winter [​IMG] Nothing like picking a girl up to get the eggs and finding a rather large rat snake sleeping soundly!!!

    My cats not much better! Ive see him watching snakes sun themselves on the walk way. Or my favorite was when Trap was sitting on the top step watching the snake on the bottom step! Such a worthless cat, but I love em.
