I'm so glad they are okay.

If a dog approached my flock, I'm afraid they wouldn't run and hide. They are so used to my (chicken friendly) dogs, they probably wouldn't even move if any other dog came around. hmm.png

We've all had lucky breaks with our chickens :O

Recently, my sweet Wellie got stuck outside, and I didn't even notice!!

My poor baby was stuck outside all night, but didn't get taken thank goodness :(

Oh dear, so glad all your babies are okay. Back a few months ago, in the days when our girls free-ranged all day, a neighbor's beagle came and nearly wiped out every single one of our chickens and ducks. What scared me the most was that while I was in the process of scaring the dog away, he ran behind one of the barns out of my sight, and a blood curdling chicken scream ensued. It didn't help that just as this happened, I found a large pile of feathers in a different part of the yard. Once he was gone, I searched the yard, crying, for any survivors or bodies. The 9 ducks and about 14 chickens (this is including 5 caged chicks) were in the coop hiding, but all the rest failed to appear. Then, two chickens came out from hiding underneath a small pine tree, and a couple seconds later, all the rest of the flock (about 13) flooded out of the cornfield straight to us. God was merciful and spared our precious, loved, and much doted-on flock, and I will never take it lightly.

Was walking upstairs to hitch the laundry basket... looked outside...

Saw our Backyard GATE OPEN :epSaw a BIG GERMAN SHEPHERD near the fence :ep

Looked everywhere for the chickens... couldn't FIND them :ep

 

 

Ran outside, grabbed something to protect my chickens... shut the gate immediately...

Looked all around the yard; and finally, you know what?

 

They were tucked in some shrubbery clucking at me, confused why I was running around the yard like a madwoman. :pop

 

Gave me a heart attack, it was so scary. Had I not noticed then... that dog may have made quick work of the flock.

 

My random story for today. :weee

Scary!! Glad your chickens are safe.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
