It's that time of year again. Snakes are looking for a little dinner and they really like to eat eggs. I use a mixture of garlic, cinnamon, rosemary, thyme boiled together, strained and put in a spray bottle, then I spray it in the nest boxes, the hen house, and the coops and it works pretty good since snakes see with their sense of smell rather than their eyes. One whiff and they are usually out of here. However, we do still run across one every now and then. I got to wondering if there are other people who raise chickens which may have home made snake repellents that have worked. I would really like to try them. Feel free to try mine and to share yours. If you have a homemade snake repellent that works- would love to hear from you!
Update on Natural Snake Repellents
I have discovered that snakes do not like cinnamon oil and clove oil and I spray it in my nest boxes and around my coop to keep them away. I use 10 drops of cinnamon oil and 10 drops of clove oil per gallon of water. Mix well, put it in a spray bottle and spray any dark place where snakes may be. Be very careful for the next week after applying because any snakes that may have been hiding there will come out and you could run into them.
How to Keep Snakes Away From Your Chickens
Living on the Brazos River with my little chicken farm, I found myself in a constant battle with snakes. I was finding them in my coop, in nest boxes, and even under my broody hens. Since using my get rid of snakes methods I no longer have a snake problem. See how I keep snakes away from my chicken coop here: Go to How to Keep Snakes Away From Chickens
