I'm completely new to all of this, but we desire to get some chickens within the next year. I'm currently in the process of reading as much as I can, but I just can't get past the thought of snakes right now. It seems like they are prevalent around chicken coops? Is there a danger of getting a snake bite? Part of the interest in chickens lies in teaching our children (and ourselves) to be more self-sufficient. I can see our kids (ages 6 and under) gathering eggs and going to see the chickens. Do I need to worry about snakes and snakes bites, especially with little ones running around?
