This is the third snake that Son has killed in the last 24 hours. One was beside the barn, one was in the barn, and this last one was in the coop, in a nesting box...
with a full belly.
We cut the belly open (pretty gruesome) and guess what we found?
The black chick that was hatched by the broody hen several weeks ago, which had gone missing yesterday morning. It was significantly bigger than in this picture.
We were very sad to lose the chick and even sadder to know that it was eaten by a snake.
