So i have 6 bantam chicks of different breeds. I have yet to get a coop and when I do I want to make sure that its snake proof. I live in texas on 5 acres with forests and such around, and we've found rattlesnakes on the road before. Is there anything else I can do to keep snakes away from my birds besides 1/4 inch fencing and keeping the grass short? I'm not too worried about foxes and such because we have dogs that would keep them away, and whatever coop i get will have a roof so i dont have to worry about hawks. I am willing to make whatever adjustments/add ons I need to keep them safe. Thanks!
