Merry bought 2 Silky Bantums this Spring. Now we have 1 :!:


I have a dislike for snakes so I didn't let him finish his meal but hung him up for target practice.


Tiny little rattles on him. A good snake is a dead snake :!: :!: :!:

That snake sure did pick on the wrong house! Sorry you lost a pet.

I didn`t think that was a rattler till you said it had tiny little rattles on it. A snake that size here would normally have a lot of rattles with big buttons.

They used to get into my chicken coop and swallow the baby-chicks whole and you could see the big bulge on the snake where the chick was inside it. Them things is GOOD eatin Donny. I used to BBQ about 30 at a time.

We used to have problems with a snake raiding the nesting boxes attached to the wall of our old barn, but could never find the snake. One day it swallowed a glass nest egg, crawled through a knothole into anohter nest box and then swallowed another nest egg. found him then. LOL

I 've had a terrible time in the past with my chickens. The only way I can keep them alive is with high voltage. They've been safe ever since the fence went up. I never thought about a snake however. It might go right under the fence and not get bit. Gave my neibor my prized rooster and we made a nice fully inclosed area for him. He didn't last long before something got him. Without electric we just can't keepem alive around here.

We never had snakes attacking chickens but plenty of problems with raccoons and fox. Pesky varmints, it's nearly impossible to make a chicken house vermin-proof without money from Frank Perdue. Most of our snakes were feasting on the rodents eating up the feed. We discovered german shepards helped considerably with controlling vermin as well as with deer raiding the sweet corn. They also kept human varmints at bay.
