Not an egg...


Woah! This is what Christopher Hodshon found in his chicken house the other day--a blacksnake attempting to swallow one of the golf balls he'd put in there to encourage the chickens to lay in the box. Thanks to Charlie Hodshon for sending over this picture.

Did the snake actually swallow it? My kids are concerned for its welfare.

Doug Elliot has a great story about a snake that swallowed a fake egg in his chicken house and how he made it regurgitate it. It is great this one was caught at this stage, before it got any further down in the digestive system.
