Python visited again - killed the remaining hen chick but couldn't swallow her (saliva coated). Clearly I can't raise chicks without extreme fencing or killing pythons, even though I did keep them locked up for ages. But that is fine because I don't really like eggs - always struggling to keep up with 3 bantam hens. The only survivor I'm pretty sure is a rooster - from the silver lace wyandotte. Finally gave in and bought a new mower, I just wasn't keeping up to the grass with scythe/push mower/whippersnipper.
