Huge Snake in the Chicken Coop

Bull Snake

This desert dweller found its way into my chicken coop yesterday. Although I’m not a fan of snakes, this one is at least harmless to humans.The Bull Snake is considered a good snake in these parts because it eats rattle snakes.  I’m not sure if this creepy crawler is big enough to kill a chicken, but chicks and eggs are a certainty.  Looks like my aviary netting strangled it when it tried to crawl through it. I don’t like the thought of my netting killing anything, but I’m glad all my chickens are safe.

I learned one thing from this, I won’t be blindly reaching into the coop for eggs ever again!
