I woke up this morning and sent out my chicks to the range. Left them feeds and water. I went back to my room, open my computer, and then connect to the internet. Just when I open my bookmarks to BYC, a really bad shout or squirm or chirp whatever it is but for sure it came from my chick. I rushed out and see maybe the other larger chicken tried to bully them and eat their feed. I was shock. A snake was inside the fence. It wasn't that big but for sure it could strangle my chicks. One of my chicks was coming at it. I have to shoo it away from the snake. I grab a stick and killed the snake. I know it wasn't a poisonous snake but I'm looking for signs of weakness from my chicks. It's really scary, one of the chicks must have been bitten. Until now I feel sad because my chick might get sick. I know she was bitten. I just hope for the best. Scary. So guys, if you can make a really small screen/mesh from the ground to about 2 feet of your fence, everything would be much safer.
