It’s another adventure every day at the chicken farm. Today I went out to check for eggs and there was a humongous black rat snake in the nesting box!

I wondered why our egg production had dropped lately. Now I know why!

I had seen this guy around so I had the brilliant idea of ordering a long snake grabber pole from Amazon JUST IN CASE! Got the snake grabber two days ago and today we had dire need of it… Happy to say it performed beautifully and said snake is now safely 3 acres away in the neighboring woods.

Unfortunately this crazy adventure happened too fast to take any video. So enjoy this dramatic reenactment of “There’s A Snake in the Chicken Coop!!!”

(No people, chickens or snakes were harmed during this event. A few eggs may not have been so lucky.)
