How can I keep snakes away from my coop and pen? I seen one in the coop yesterday and let it go. Then I checked the eggs. I had one less and got to looking and found a crused eggs shell and no yolk mess in the nest. So I know a chicken didn't eat it. then to day I found a whole egg that had been crushed flat and no yolk in the nest box. So I know a snake is eating the egg because they eat the whole egg crush it inside them the spit it back out. So how can I get them out of there. They can have one if they start buying food, but free eggs for them won't fly.
