2) Research golf balls and snakes.


I found they can’t hack a golf ball back up like a glass egg for some reason.

Alot of people can't handle them but I love them, I have guinea fowls, had them for years. I used to have copperhead everywhere. Since the guineas run loose, no more snakes at all. They keep them away.

We thought about getting some guineas when we moved here. After killing two rattlers in the yard a week and a half ago the idea has resurfaced some.

Still have the rattlesnakes here, the guineas have become varmit turds.

That's been my experience also, don't miss the guineas at all.
