Just found snake in run, should I be concerned for chickens ever, or the snake
depends on how big the snake is
Won't last long. The chickens will probably eat it if it isn't too big.
If it's big, it could go after the eggs.
If it's a garter snake, I'd be concerned for the poor little snake... Your chickens might do this to it...
try to usher the poor garter snake to safety, or it won't last long...
the chickens will make short work of it if they find it!
oh dear, hmmmm, not sure how to scoot it out, without screaming, LOL.
it's hiding behind a big rock in the run right now. oh man, I dare not go down there in case the girls are mutilating it.
I need a man !!!!!!!!!!!! Mines away on a course.
Get a rake that way you can move it around without having to touch it.

Garter snakes won't hurt you. Snakes don't scare me, but I know I'm really not normal. You might try putting a bucket over the snake and then slide a piece of cardboard underneath it, like catching a bug in the house or something. Then take the snake to safety.
I went and checked, snake was gone, no carcass pieces anywheres. I am thinking the snake skeedaddled right outta there once it realized where it had slitthered too, as he probably was thinking that there weren't chickens there a few weeks ago.
hopefully he wised up and won't come back.
I was thinking of getting the neighbors boy, he likes to collect frogs, so would have been easy for him.
Ok....weird question...will a garter snake kill a chick
