In the Brooder
- Nov 4, 2013
I had an old iron parrot cage that I had put wire mesh on the bottom of. Being new to quail and chicks, I thought that the bars were small enough that nothing could get in. The quail are nearly a month old and have been flourishing in their little house. I came home from work this afternoon and went to open the cage to feed them and low and behold about 2 feet long with 2 lumps in his middle was snuggled up in the middle of the cage. I was horrified. My son managed to dispatch the snake and I now have 6 quail in a new and hopefully snake proof cage. I hate snakes....
