In light of everyone's "snake in the coop" stories, I am curious to know if there is a way to keep these egg stealing pests out of the coop. Is there a way to do that? I would sure like to learn if there is one! My DH works 36 hour shifts most of the time, so that leaves me here to take care of things by myself a lot. I don't mind snakes at a distance, but am not to keen about being trapped in a building with one at my feet, or any other part of my body for that matter! If there is truly away to keep them out of the coop, I would be so very happy to learn about it!
