Oh My! Tilly Found A Snake!~



As I was doing dishes I see Tilly running across the back yard with a super big worm~so I thought. All the other girls were chasing her at record speed. Upon further investigation I see it is none other than a baby snake. By now all of State Route W can here me calling my family. Forget about snakes in the road now I have one right on my found porch in my pet chicken's mouth. Hannah comes to my rescue~well maybe not. She loves snakes and decides to save it's poor dear life from Tilly. No kidding. Poor Tilly is never going to forgive Hannah for stealing her treasure. She was so proud of herself! The snake is now free to grow and get bigger. I can see it now~it will be in the chicken coop going after my eggs. I am sure 18 year girls are not suppose to want to save snake's lives. See~ I truly have lost all control at Farming On Faith. First chickens in the kitchen and now snakes on my front porch.
What is next for this city girl who is trying hard to conform to country living?

I think you are doing pretty good adapting to country life! Maybe the snake will head on down the road. Have a great weekend, Carrie.

Bless your heart...I am NOT a big fan of snakes! I know they are some of God's creatures but could they just live in a zoo...PLEASE!

Gotta love her! This is how my daughter is with rodents. She saves them from the dogs!

Great job, Hannah for saving the snake! (Sorry, Carrie :)) I was too afraid the other day to save a little garter snake from my kitties who were playing with him. Poor little thing - hopefully he escaped. The plus side of snakes - natural rodent killers! But I do admit they give me a little scare too when I first see them :) -Tammy

I don't think I would have gone near her with that snake in her mouth. I'm deathly afraid of snakes!

Hi just came by to tell you I was here earlier with my grandson. He loved looking at chicken photo's. He laughed when I said look there is a chicken in the house! He enjoyed the frog too! He is almost two and very fascinated with what I am doing on the computer. We left here and visited my friend Chell that has bunny photo's. Well I hope you have a great weekend. Just wanted to say hi. BTW I love the new look. Are you doing these yourself. They are great.

I would have to agree with you, 18 year old girls should not want to rescue snakes;o) Snakes is one thing I have not ever gotten real use to, thankfully we don't have many around here (so far I haven't seen one the four years we have lived here) and hope it stays that way! Love your chicken in the kitchen pictures! Have a great weekend.

Only on the front porch Carrie! My first ever meeting with a snake was in the house and that was a real large python, a few months after moving in. Rememember I came from NZ which has no snakes! Or how about a deadly brown snake in the bedroom - we called in the snake catcher for that one. Yes, it is wonderful to know I can call up someone to come and catch the snakes I am not going near but husbands and teenage sons come in useful for the pythons in the chicken house. They are not venomous, useful for controlling rodents so many people are happy for them to be in their roof or just around the house (but not the chicken house!) but they sure get big and can give you a scare.
Recently our cat was seen with a large 'worm' in her jaws and it turned out to be a snake, a baby brown at that, not much comfort to know that they still carry enough venom to kill you. The cat dropped the snake and my daughter chopped its head off with the spade. Gosh, I have probably put you off ever coming to Australia!

I’m not afraid of snakes unless they are poisonous. They are great to have in your garden so as long as they stay out of my way, I’m good with them being in my yard. If they are the poisonous type it’s off with their heads. We put out moth balls to keep them from certain areas around our house. It’s worked for us for the past 2 years. After my sweetie found several copperheads we researched how to keep them away and moth balls was one of the determents. Hannah is a brave and compassionate girl. Bless her heart!

Isn't it funny watching them chase after things other hens have found, they love snakes and can have them!
