Yeaster day was a hot humiday in the south and so i didnt bother to check for eggs till about an hour before sunset. So i went about my normal routine and feed the girls and then watered then. In my egg boxes i have some golfballs painted brown to stop them from eating their eggs. When i lifted up the little door on the side of the coop to gather the eggs, to my extreme supprise there was a 4ft king snake in there.He was all coiled up and had 2 big lumps in him and had something else in his mouth. So i ran up to the house and got some help to catch the snake. When we got back down there he was still in th same spot. When i reeched in there to grsb him, he spit out the golfball in his mouth. Yes i did say a golf ball. Then he bolted for a small hole in the back corner of the hen house but got stuck half way due to the already 2 golf balls in his stomach. so he was easy to catch. Then we made him regerate the golf balls and set him free on the other side of the property. I told this story to see if anyone hes ever had this happen to them. Cant waite to hear your stories.

for relocating instead of killing the snake. They are great rodent killers!

How old were the chicks? do you know? mine are about 4 weeks old, and I have quite a few garter snakes around, will they pose a threat?\\
