I suspect in a few weeks another one (snake) will move in Elaine.  I hate snakes but he was quite beautiful and docile in the cool of the evening.  We came eye to eye as I was shutting the chicken coop.  I think my undies will be clean after a few more washes.

Aha - in which case the rats will return if there's something to tempt them. Much as I can admire snakes and their place in our world, I would not like to have one living so close to me, either. A green tree snake insinuated itself in the window frame over the hot water heater one winter. I found someone local to remove it (before I had a heart attack ;-) since then the fly/security screens keep out wandering wildlife.

The man on the right is the snake catcher Elaine.  The snake has been relocated.

Is the snake staying? They can eat a wallaby so the hens could be next once the rats are gone.
