The owner of a chicken coop was shocked to see that a huge snake nestled on with one of the hens – but it turned out that these two had a long-standing friendship! The chicken is not at all against such a neighborhood.
Texas resident Sarah Ellison, while vacationing on the family farm, checked the chicken coop, and was shocked to see this scene. A huge snake nestled around one of the chickens and seemed to feel at home.
Even more surprising was the fact that the hen was completely calm.
It turned out that this was not the first appearance of a snake in the chicken coop. But snakes have never communicated so closely with other animals.
The wild rat snake is well known to Sarah’s parents and plays an important role in keeping the chicken coop calm. It lives in a wrecked car near the chicken coop, and from time to time appears inside to steal one hen’s egg for herself.
Instead, the snake drives away predators and potential pests that can threaten hens and chickens. The family is already accustomed to such mutual assistance – Sarah’s father even calls the snake “buddy.”
“She never tried to harm the hens or their chickens. We are not against this snake, because it helps to ward off rodents in the chicken coop,” the farmers say.
Following the example of the feathered one, the woman decided to leave the snake alone – and, after checking again, she found that the snake had already crawled away.
Perhaps the snake just decided to bask in a warm chicken dwelling. In any case, some kind of connection between a chicken and a snake seems incredible – but it turns out it does!
