So I always thought chickens kill n eat snakes. I have 5 hens (all pets) and for wks now my eggs went from 5 a day to 2-3 a day. I found a 5ft snake that looked like a common garter n was able to shoo it away w a rather large egg in its mouth. It came back so we had to dispatch it but my hens just looked at it. I figured they would tear it up but didn't want to go near it ( it was dead but twitching). Is this normal ? Or do I have scardy cat hens?
