Went to lock up the coop yesterday evening & was literally attacked by a copperhead. I grabbed a brick that is used to hold the door open & bingo I got him. Copperheads are very aggressive snakes & very poisonous. You folks that relocate snakes are taking a big chance when their poisonous. Then first thing this morning I open the coop up & find this hanging there dead with a fake egg in his stomach. Not sure if the fake egg killed it or the hot wire that's right there at that window killed him. I do know that I'll get my fake egg back.LOL!! So lady's & gentleman it's that time of year again . Its been a long cold winter & snakes are very hungry right now. They can & will eat a bunch of your eggs per visit.
