    We were working in the garden today and I looked over at the chickens and they were all standing around in a circle staring at something. Hmmm...probably not good! Went over and they were all staring at a pretty big snake. Don't know what kind, it was mostly black with a red stripe. I felt bad for it as they were all looking at it like it was some giant worm. DH took a stick and it slithered into the grass. Hope it made it!

    I can picture a bunch of chickens investigating a snake. [​IMG]

    Mine like hunting slow worms. It sure looks strange to see a chicken with half a slow worm sticking out of her beak being chased by the rest of the flock in case she drops it.

    Once mine found a garter snake... they sure have that poor snake a rough time!
    They all crammed around it and took turns pecking him, but that snake wasn't going to give up with out a fight! He was poised to strike, and slithered away as soon as the girls were distracted.

    Oh my birds would LOVE to find a snake! They sure do enjoy eating baby mice. [​IMG]
