So Buffy is laying her egg,, cluck, cluck, I'm laying an egg!! I'm laying and egg!! Then suddenly it was HOLY CRAP I need help human help!! help!!! So went out to see what all the ruckus was about and bent over and looked in the darker baby coop, it has no windows,, and as I reach for her to see why she's in the corner and scared stiff,, I see out of the corner of my eye a snake! It wasn't in bull snake position and since I had reached forward toward Buffy with my left arm I started swinging my arm to the left instead of jerking it back towards me. The snake started it's strike and caught me just at the end of it's length, it got hung up in a milk crate which kept it from sinking it's fangs into me. It hit me but straight on instead of in biting position, squirted all over my arm and it's fangs bruised me he hit me so hard. I was back peddling really fast which is hard to do in my knee brace. He came out of the coop at top speed and just kept right on going out towards to the uncleared desert on the back of my land. I was watering in front so I grabbed the hose and rinsed my arm really well and made sure that it really was just bruised. Several years ago I got bitten, and I have scars on my right arm from it. This a pic of the twin bruises,, the area around it has bruised a little more now though, I took this about half an hour after it hit me.
