I posted this on the chicken site too... Earlier this week, my chickens found a copperhead nest. They LOVED eating tons of little nasty copperhead babies. I was worried bout the chickens.. but they r all fine. Tonight I stepped outside and found a HUGE copperhead. I have seen many and didnt think they got this big.. I have seen em 3' ish or so. But this one measured 4'3" !! it was HUGE for a copperhead. I have lived here almost 3 years and have only seen one other copperhead here.. now this... I am NOT impressed!! I have 5 kids... one of which is a 19mo girl... this is scary to me. When I was growing up in NC I remember my mother throwing moth balls out in the crawlspace under our house to "keep away the snakes" does anybody know if this works?? Anybody have any other ideas? Thanks in advance!!
