The last couple days, I've had 2 chicks just disappear from my coops.. The coops have no damage, have not been dug under. They are 1" X 2" mesh and the chicks were too big to squeeze through it.. I used to have a problem with rats getting my eggs. But, I haven't had eggs eaten in awhile.. Which I thought was quite strange as I didn't poison or anything. It's like the rats just disappeared. Do I potentially have snakes? I know I have snakes in my yard but they've never really caused issue with my chickens. This is the first year I've let the hens raise their own young. Those were my only small chicks. Will the snake just move on or is it going to try to find others to eat? Are they an issue with adult birds?
