Don’t worry – there are no pictures! You’re welcome!
This evening I went out to check for eggs. It wasn’t nearly dark but the sun was low. When it’s this hot, I check for eggs four or five times a day. When I looked down in one of the egg boxes, it looked like a snake in there but, the way he was buried in the shavings, it kinda looked like a pile of chicken poop. I went back to the house to get Vince.
Me: I think there might be a snake in the chicken coop.
Me: IN THE CHICKEN COOP!
Vince: In the main part of the coop?
Me: No, in one of the laying boxes.
Vince: Which one?
Me: Oh, my goodness! Just please come help me.
Vince: You aren’t SURE if it’s a snake?
Me: Vince, just get the snake grabber and follow me!
We got to the coop. I showed him which box it was in. He looked . .
Vince: I think it’s poop.
Me: I wasn’t sure so I didn’t want to stick my hand in there.
Vince: Oh, wait . . it is a snake.
Yep, it was a snake! That’s the second one this summer. Last summer I didn’t find any snakes in the coops. The summer before . . 16 snakes in one coop.
I think that’s so weird . . 16, then none and now 2.
