I've posted a couple of times about all the snakes I had cleared out of my barn. I think I chased the last one out last week. I always have my eyes open for them though. This evening after work I was making my rounds and decided to get Flora out of her little temporary pen and carry her around with me. All the poults, including the wild 4 were near the little gate but I thought they were just looking for food. Flora and I walked around checking on everybody and when I walked back toward the poults' temporary pen I noticed a huge black snake laying on top of the deer net that covers their pen. I thought - great - one is back. When I looked, it didn't move. Upon closer inspection I realized it was dead. I was hoping that the poults had killed it but there were no peck marks on it. It had gotten tangled in the deer netting and was cut pretty deep. To tell how long it is, it's beside a 6' garden stake.
