Don’t laugh. It is…well, it WAS a temporary shelter for our ‘NUGGETS’
Until yesterday, I woke up to this. We don’t think it was our dogs…but we’ve not ruled that possibility out. They are after all…dogs. There was a lot of dirt. None on them. One of our dogs…the good one, was sitting near by as though on Sentry duty, in the same place all night. I’d like to think she was keeping watch and ran whatever it was off the property.
This little NUGGET looked right at me as if to say, “Did you see it? IT tried to eat me!'” All day the weather was over cast and we were constantly under some type of SEVERE WEATHER WARNING. Our county was under a Tornado Warning for the better part of the afternoon. There were several tornadoes that went through parts of Ft.Worth, Dallas and East Texas. It was all North of us; we only ended up with Thunder Storm warnings; rain, lightning, and hail.
This is what it looked like as I was getting the BIG chickens back to the Coop.
Then this happened~
I stayed pretty calm. EVEN THOUGH…it was right above my head as I was putting the scoop back in the feed bin. Yes, RELATIVE CALM…. in the midst of the storm.
Honey came to the rescue. It’s pretty graphic. But I’ll just tell you, ‘CLEAN OFF!’….
That’s were he blew the head of this snake. …clean off.! Implements of destruction.
It was a chicken snake. Now... it is a ‘good’ chicken snake. Teach you to get 5 inches from my head…Sorry, don’t mean to sound like an ANGRY CHICKEN KEEPER.
I don’t like any snakes. So a ‘good’ snake is a dead snake. No offense to snakes out there, who might be offended reading this post. …he he he.
Got the chickens BACK INSIDE the coop. Yes, they were all so well, behaved and got right in the coop when the snake incidence occurred. Honey let them out… and they SKID-DADDLED when he came in with the hoe. So, they had to be coaxed BACK IN a second time.
I like this picture…the fuzzy ring around it is the chicken wire. PHEW! I thought there was something wrong with my camera; but NO. It’s just my incredible camera skills! You must remember… a storm was coming. (and I’m a lousySHARING THIS HERE: Farmgirl Friday #52

Because someone, not me, was trying to eat my NUGGETS before their time. You don’t MESS with my chickens!
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
