    So I have had countless quails suffocated from snakes, the snake would attempt to swallow my Hens and roos ,oh wait turns out they're to big so once they're dead the snake spits them back out and goes for my maturing chicks and swallows the poor things whole.
    I have already lost countless breeding pairs, and chicks.
    Somebody help.

    How do I keep the snakes out, I tried mothballs and that didn't help one bit. My business is crumbling to the ground because of this dang thing.

    You need to keep them in snake proof shelters/cages at night. It is part of the cost of "doing business".
