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. :wallbanging:  :D

No good deed goes unpunished. I have a 3 1/2' black racer that lives under my tire changer. We leave each other alone and he cuts down on the mice and other snakes. Good Luck, Rick

His eyes were bigger than his stomach that time! Could have been worse..... if it had been the mink mentioned in another thread he'd have killed all the chicks just for fun.

It was actually probably a female due to size and it had a shorter tail from it "back end" opening.

It was only 3 weeks old, too small to make anything out of except maybe a nugget!

That's one of them reticulated chicken snakes. You can't trust them fer' nothin'. They'll lie to you just to see if they can. Do you know they'll grow to 12 feet?

 I have had this happen. I think I had 2 or 3 survivors out of about 24 chickens. It chewed the heads off of some, but most of them it just killed. I think of that every time I hear someone who is anti-hunting say that man is the only animal that kills for sport.

We have had opossum around our house under the bird feed a lot this year.  so far I have shot 9 or 10.  A while back a ground hog showed up, clawing on the siding under the living room window.  He heard me open the door and disappeared.  Noticed a new hole under the mud room, which is just on post on concrete pads.  Carolyn put some mothballs followed with vinegar in the hole and covered it.  Went back about 10 min later the cover was gone and haven't seen the groundhog either.  Ah-h, the fun of living in the country but darn sure would not trade if for city life.

I've had kills in the past, lost 5-6 chickens in one night and they were all left, makes ya wonder if it's a game to some animals.

 

I have a ground hog in the field, big old plump one. Every time we go out to take a shot, it runs a way or we can't get close enough. I need to get rid of it before the corn gets ears. I may try to smoke it out or use the moth balls or powdered lime in the hole, just gotta find all the holes.
