I came home to a snake in the nest box! It had eaten three eggs and was on the fourth! I went inside and loaded my 22LR clip as full as it would go, too mad to count. I marched out there and unloaded the clip into it's egg eating *@#$%^^&!!!! I know it was overkill, but I was ticked! Now I know why I have only been getting 5-6 eggs out of 9 hens!!
