    great looking coop Julie.

    Not so sure about the snake thing. Is it a trap?

    I am catching up on posts and haven't read them all, but from my resources 68 degrees is the lowest temperature for four week old chicks.

    Btw~ your chicks have GROWN! Very cute in their cabana. : - )

    Sally- yes. I should've given more info. It said if you have snake problems to use a push trap to catch snakes and ever coupe should have one! We had a 6 ft black snake last year( didnt have chickens yet) but if your having a big problem it would be easy to use.

    A couple of weeks ago I almost stepped on a black snake that was heading to my chicken coop. I nearly had a heart attack. My husband launched it into the weeds but I know it's still out there. I guess I should look into that thing. Makes me weak just thinking about it though

    I hope it works.... Probably just depends on the hen. I've heard of hens pecking at the little newcomers and I've heard of hens taking babies right in. I have a hen right now with a little chick under her wing that doesn't belong to her. I'd like to know how it goes!

    I am not a fan of snakes, but black snakes are 'gold'. I will take yours off your hands if you need. :)

    Those are used to catch live fish for fish bait, we use them often to catch minnow and such for the larger game. Sure they can be used for snakes.

    I could probably bring a camera for such things.
