    I went to check on my 4 week old quail,when I open the lid I saw about a
    4-5 foot snake!! after catching my breath I look in again and it had swallowed 2 of my baby quails. [​IMG] (i'm very nervie around snakes)I grabed needle nose pliers got it by the head,took it out and removed his quail eating head. Any advice in keeping snakes away???

    Not sure but I'd make a belt out of that 1. I love tanning snake hides.

    good for you! I highly dislike snakes and hate them when they are around my pets!
