Last night at 11 PM my 9 yr old got up to go to the bath room, came out screaming there was a snake in there. We went in and sure enough there was a snake behind the toilet. I was going to save it at first but then when I stuck the stick back there I heard rattling and it struck the stick, so I figured it was a bad sign. I got the machete and chopped its head off pulled it out and it was a brown snake with diamond shapes on the back. A rattle snake was in my bath room. Do they eat chicken eggs? And could they be coming in cause I have baby chicks in the house?
