I have 16 girls , all recently acquired (2 groups of 8, a few weeks apart). 3 are Isa Browns the rest are tiny x breeds. Silkiexbantam and speckledxfrizzle, and two which I think might be pekins. They are all rehomes and the Isa look like ex battery rescues. Facts/history scarce.
They are pets and we love watching them and trying to understand their roles and personalities and relationships.
I don't even eat eggs and the 8 first hens are laying like crazy having gotten fat and happy. The others have only been here 24hrs.

Hi from WA!
We live in the Swan Valley Perth .
Have had hi line Browns for last 4 yrs. last one died to a snake (we think) 3 days ago. They only have a life span of three to four years. They were great egg layers and pets, but nasty to others when you added to the flock. We now have five 3/4 Astralorp and 5 3/4leghorn 8 week old chicks that we are hand raising. How is your flock going?

Oh how sad.  It generally is the  dog or cat that kills the family chickens.  The best advice is to keep dogs & chickens far apart.  Dogs + chickens = dead chickens. I feel  so badly for the poor baby chook and your 4 yr. old.
