I raised these two cocks myself in the early 90s. We didnít know they were male at first, although we were a bit suspicious when they didnít begin to lay eggs. The
spores on their feet were also a bit unusual for hens. Their regular crowing at five in the morning gave them away eventually.
My father recently found this snakeskin in our garden. It is over 95cm long, which means that the snake is now even longer than that. We guess itís some sort of adder.
Update (spring 2004): now my mom has seen the snake itself and itís bloody big.
