You will never believe this! So I had just finnished dinner and went out to put our laidies up and as I went to the cage I heard a sound like a machine gun. I knew that it was not in the cage so I checked a fallen tree where one of the hens liked to lay her eggs and boy was I surprised to see a rat snake in there in stead. As I looked closer I could tell that he had eaten the eggs and his tail was vibrating bettween both branches. I checked the coop to make sure that he didn't eat the hen and he didn't and later found out that it was a Texas Rat Snake.
