Our girls were free ranging out by the woods today, as they often do. Farm Boy took our kitchen compost down to the compost bin and noticed the chickens playing with a very large 'worm'. After closer inspection, he discovered they had a small snake! They took turns picking it up and running away, while the others chased after, wanting a turn a turn of their own with the critter. J-Straco tried to rescue the snake, but it was too late. Chickens-1, Snake-0.
