My chickens love snakes! Especially one called Redtail. We sometimes get these 'worm' snakes, that are not the size of worms, but still small for a snake. I have seen Redtail swallow one whole . Today I found one and tossed it to the chickens. They went nuts, playing tug-a-war, chasing eachother, flapping, cackling...you get the picture. Oh my gosh a GIANT worm!!!!!!!! So if you hate snakes, get chickens!
