    ours may do so

    We have a few around our farm house and have not had any snakes since--but of course can't prove they are the deterrent but certainly do no harm.Cost about $43 from local hardware and solar powered,just push into the ground, pulse every few minutes.

    One of my brothers had a bits and pieces farm dog,collie/kelpie/koolie mixture.
    It killed a ridiculous number red bellied and browns over the years,never got bitten,died at 16yrs from old age.

    He made up a perch for it in the back of the Series 1,so when we were away travelling,it came with us,as there was no one to look after it.

    I have actually got a pic of it in the LR somewhere,i will have to dig it out and post it up.

    Now back on topic,came across these a few weeks ago,browns,arguing over a female.

    Luckily we saw them before the dog did.

    Thanks for all your feedback guys, that's great.
    A couple of explanatory points.
    We're currently traveling, but before we went away we reinforced the wiring and the pythons haven't got in since.
    However, a chook disappeared while loose in the backyard and the grandson thinks it was a red belly or brown, but isn't sure.
    So the wife is keen to defend her girls in any way possible.
    Responding to a couple of posts:
    Can't do an electric fence Ian, it might fry the chooks or dogs. Plus I'd have to cover the whole chook run, which is quite large.
    Had roosters but they were useless - just cowered in the corner.
    Not getting a hawk, although they are lovely. I'm not a Saudi sheikh.
    Got two dogs at the house, but they wouldn't know how to kill a snake. Total wuses.
    Guinea fowl are an interesting idea. They were roaming around in Ravenshoe and other campers said they are great for deterring snakes and also eat ticks. I've heard the noise they make and it wouldnt worry me. Might investigate that.
    The Navigator has already bought the deterrent I pictured, so I'm stuck with it.
    When we get home I'll stick it in place and see if it makes any difference.
    Meanwhile, if anyone has any other bright ideas, I'm all ears.

    If the chook was dead in the backyard then maybe a red belly (unlikely) or a brown but if the chook went missing from the backyard I would consider a python but more likely a fox.

    Or a Gosshawk.
    They took mobs of our chooks at Ravenshoe.
    And Yes, Guinea Fowl are excellent snake deterrent but you need a few.

    Not to be outdone by a Crowned Hawk cadging a ride in a Land Rover I found some images of the Cheetah but they were sent & copied in PDF (Why?) years ago & I can't seem to copy & post them here. I only have the basic B & W box Brownie image of those times.

    Animal's name was in fact Chui not Chewy.


    But I guess you have all seen a Cheetah? Or a Cheater?

    Some time ago there was a TV series on unusual pets. A guy in California had a cheetah. The property had 10' fences and a gate sign saying "Watch Cheetah on duty. He can run 100 yards in 5 seconds. Can you?"
