    This area (above) I get to totally do myself, expenses paid. Its going to be an English style garden, took me 1 week total to draw out the design of it. Much like a Dutch Aquascape. So im going to a before & after photo, here's the before!

    Not that we have seen, chickens aren't afraid of him either. Think he just made it his home...

    If he did eat an egg though I don't think we would mind very much, we cant eat them all ourselves! Ive actually held him before, which isn't safe to hold wild snakes period unless you know the type (this is the common black snake, keeps away copperheads) or how, but he is a super nice snake lol!
    I have delt with snakes a lot in my life, and what I have learned is (this applies to every snake),
    if you are mean to a snake, it'll bite you on the ass, if your nice, it'll be nice.

    Ah nice of you to share w/Mr snake. I respect them but I keep my distance and am alert when visiting area's w/poisonous ones. All we have here on the West side are Garter Snakes, no poison ones except on the east side of the mountains.

    I think this is true of all of nature, including snakes. A snake doesn't know "nice" from "not nice" - they just evaluate whether you are A. a threat B. a meal or C. not worth the trouble.

    Say Hi!! How old are yours? Are they laying yet? Mine's just about 4 months... cant wait for them to lay!

    I'm trying to get them to trust me again but those 4 new girls are making my older ones very skiddish. Even the meal worms cannot lure them in!!!!

    ahh... you have a place of my dream... but I dream of an easier land to take care of (now with 5 acres with 3 of them infested with wisteria so it looks like a rain forest jungle, we cleared 2 acres but it cost us arms and legs) and more time in the day..

    I have lots of zinnia too. Got some cool ones. I planted some last year and this year I got tons of volunteers. I have this small yellow birds that would come to eat the zinnia and leave me with 1/4 of the flower. But I love the birds, they are super cute.

    Duck eggs help with defeating cancer
    Lol I have never had a duck that I could "handle" but chickens are pretty good. Especially when you choose one as your pet, I do that with every animal, 1 pet! lol.
