I had been worried about my ducks with the oncoming spring weather. I have two sitting on nests. My muscovy is on day 27 and she has a mix of eggs under her. Well, a snake go into the coop just now. The other female, a very vocal black swedish was sounding the alarm. I ran out there to find the snake had a hold of Smooshy, the muscovy. As I approached, the snake let go and I was able to trap it under a food bowl. Smooshy waddled as fast as she could back to her nest. I know she was attacked at the nest and she led the snake away. But, not without one casualty. I believe this one was a blue swedish. Coop needs some fortifying.
