A Snake is Hiding Under the Log Heap

I saw a little garter snake today when I was walking to the store. Even if he was after chickens and their eggs, he'd be too small to manage them. He couldn't even get his mouth around my husband's finger when I caught him for the kids over the weekend. At least you have something that will chase him away so your chickens are safe! They can be such a headache... I remember a few years ago a neighbor caught a big snake raiding her chicken coop. He was in the middle of eating an egg when she found him.
