I currently have 4 young pullets Butterscotch, Sky, Lucabelle and Dutchess. They are all around 10 weeks but lately we have had a Red belly black snake hanging around the coop as it gets quite hot in summer and so today we saw a Red belly black snake in our chickens coop. The 4 young ones hung around the outside so now I am concerned about their safety. Any advise on ways I can keep the snake away from them? We have a way of scaring it off but I am worried that they will accidentally threaten it and then will get bitten.
