Do I need to worry about snakes in my coop? I found a 5ft rat snake or black snake in my coop this morning... (not to mention my 16 yo DS decided to CATCH it and it bit him) I do have some 2 week old bantams out there, but they are in a pen inside the coop with 1/2 inch netting around them. Will they bother full size chickens? It may have been after mice, but I have been here 5 years and this is the first year I have had chickens AND the first year I have EVER seen a snake in my barn. Ideas? Suggestions?
