Do I need to worry about snakes getting the chickens or just the eggs. I think I have heard someone say they will get the chicks, but not the hens & roos. Anyone have experience here? Besides the common snakes around any barnyard, I do have moccasins nearby. Previous owner was actually bitten by one years ago also. I just can not stand them and believe the only good snake is a dead one. I won't worry bout them if their not going to eat my chickens, but if they are, they are going to be a pair of boots. Thanks for the help folks!
