    I went to feed them and noticed one pullet running around, cheeping like crazy. She had a small snake, approx 5 inches long in her mouth! She'd already killed it and was trying to keep her treasure from all the other pullets, who were chasing her around, trying to mug her. She ended up swallowing it, bit by bit. It was quite a sight!
    I filmed some of the action, but the video quality wasn't so great... Sorry!
    Aren't chickens crazy?
