    We had a little excitement here this morning. My rooster let me know that there was a good sized king snake in my broody hen's nest. I don't think it was there for long as none of the eggs had been eaten. I noticed the hen was off of her eggs at 6:40 this morning, the snake incident was at 9:20. Do you think her eggs will still be ok? It's been in the high 80s to low 90s all morning. Her eggs should be due to hatch next weekend.

    Temperature-wise, the eggs will probably be just fine.

    Just make sure the snake won't be coming back. :eek:
