OK My darling wife has noticed that there has been a severe drop in the number of eggs from our 3 hens. Then the other day there was a snake in the back yard and the min pin was going bolistic on it. Then today she saw out the window a snake dropped out of the coop from about 3 feet and the two eggs big mama was sitting on were gone. we tried to find it but in the minute or two it took us to get out there it was gone. I like my fried egg samaches and need this snake gone. A few questions..... how do you catch a snake? the one she saw was grey and had a black head bout 2.5 to three feet long and about half as big around as her wrist. What kind of snake could this bee? Being a animal lover and animal trapper, we are not afraid and would usually let it be but something has to give. Any and all ideas will be tried. Thanks!
