    Sorry but a snake is a snake. Around chickens any snake is a danger. I know a king snake will kill rattlers and other poison snakes. Still he would have had to be sent to Heaven.

    He's a beauty...looks like he's already eaten, so you should be safe for a few weeks.

    We have a snake problem here, one killed my baby roo. You need a brave person (DH is mine) to grab those suckers and rehome them very very very very far away!!! [​IMG]
