A black rat snake ate my quail!!!! but that's not it, snake found his way INTO my house and up onto my table where I had 2 bins with 1 month old quail. There were 2 bins, and snake went into the one bin and killed 4 quail then started eating them! One in the belly, one 1/2 way in, and the 2 others were leftovers. I am horrified, yet impressed that nature was able to hunt my quail from outside the house. ...and I don't live in a yurt!
