Photography ~ 2018 Critter(s)–YIKES!!!

This is NOT what I expected to find as I checked for eggs…

I do not think it is a black snake. Please tell me what type snake this is. Thanks! Nonetheless–share and share alike–one for him and one for me. Pictures were taken with my iPhone…

 

 

Weather & Chickens ~ Keeping Relatively Dry, Cedar Farms, 01/22

Got out of the house [coop], but smart enough to seek protection from freezing rain…

They’re in the chicken run, getting some protection [provided by the pine straw above] from the freezing rain. It’s interesting the places they choose to be, relative to weather, time of day, etc. Also interesting that I have 5 chickens and 5 turtles.
