Snakes in the backyard.
We've gotten many snakes in our backyard even before we got the chickens. Mostly because we live right next to a large bush (I wouldn't call it a forest, because it's not that large, but it's lots and lots of bushes and trees and does stretch pretty far) and snakes are definitely living in there. Our most dangerous snakes are puff adders and tree snakes(I don't really know what they're called, but we call it a Boomslang and they're very poisonous) And ever since we got our chickens I've been so scared of snakes coming and killing them. Yesterday my heart almost stopped. I heard my rooster making a sound as if to warn the hens and when I checked there was a puff adder right in front of them. They didn't know what it was and just followed it and looked at it. Luckily after a while we got the chickens to go away from the puff adder, but it was hard. Would chickens attack a puff adder and would they be able to dodge their attacks?
