I haven't been getting any eggs for about a week. I knew something must be eatting them so I begain cleaning the coop out so I could find the place where the pest was getting in. What did i find? A big Rat snake in the corner of my coop under some bedding!!! It was huge!!A foot taller then me!!!So there I am in this lil coop with a rat snake over 6ft long. I was not scared just surprised, but then I got mad!!! He should not be in here I need to get him out NOW!!! My dad is a big nature guy,so Iv known how to handel snakes since I was a lil kid. So I cought him and then I relized how big he was, and how old he was!! I couldn't kill him!! So I released him in my 60 acer woods 10 miles away from my coop so he can live out the rest of his days in peace!!
