My wife keeps on saying she wants some pet chickens as layers. I reply: "Do you want their pen inside the fence so the dogs eat them, or outside the fence so the coyotes eat them?"

Maybe the coyotes will figure out a way to eat the pythons, when they come. I keep throwing headless rattlesnake carcasses over the fence and the bodies are always gone by sunrise. I don't think the owls are getting them.
