The first snake we see of the season, and we see it too late. This 5-foot snake killed all but a couple of the chicks we hatched last week. It’s hard to see in the picture, but it had already eaten 8 chicken and quail chicks by the time Stephen caught it.
The only bright side is that we didn’t have to buy the chicks that it ate. At least it’s easy enough to turn the incubator back on again. Aggravating, yes, but it’s not like we’re out a lot of money. That’s a blessing!
