So my mother found this "little" guy on the back porch a few weeks ago, he was climbing up downspout heading for the birds' nest under eave most likely. I caught him and put him in the barn to help with mice and even an egg every now and then.
So forward to last night, my son goes to water the new chicks we have in the barn and what does he find? Same snake making a meal on one of our chicks. I never thought about him being in the barn when I moved chicks last week. My son got him out, chick was too big for him to swallow so we pulled it out and I took him a few miles up the road in a wooded area and released him. I won't give him a third chance if he ever makes it back which I doubt. Try to be a nice guy and help him out and that's how he repaid me.
