I went to feed this morning, & in my quail pen, I see part of a snake under a half log. I went & got the shovel, flipped over the log, & Got it. It was a 5' black snake. Normally they can stick around, but mess with my birds! It had already eaten a hen. BUMMER. I wen't back to the house after feeding & my Min-Pin is very curious of the incubator. I'm due to hatch more quail, so I listened, looked in the window, & sure enough, 1 hatched, 1 trying, & several to go.
