I'm not certain what kind it is. My grandpa called it a chicken snake. It was probably 2-3 feet long. Anyone have any ideas?

Description from Wikipedia

Crotalus is a genus of venomous pit vipers found only in the Americas from southern Canada to northern Argentina. The name is derived from the Greek word krotalon, which means "rattle" or "castanet", and refers to the rattle on the end of the tail which makes this group (genera Crotalus and Sistrurus) so distinctive. 32 species are currently recognized.

No range data available.
