Our nine baby Ameraucana chicks are two weeks old today and I made a regular visit to the chicken pen to collect eggs from the big hens’ coop and check the baby chicks’ coop…but this was not a regular day! Look what I saw when I opened the chicks’ nest box.

My snake wrangler Husband handily removed the large snake so that I could take pictures! Thank heavens I checked the nest box before the mama hen and baby chicks returned to it at dusk.

This very lucky black rat snake was relocated to a wooded creek area about a mile from our house. We are hoping we do not see him again!!
