My dogs killed 5 of my Neighbors chickens! - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Just because they offered to pay for the birds doesn't mean they agreed to pay an unlimited amount of money for them, what if she said 500 dollars, should the op be required to pay that simply to defend their good name? I don't think so. I would either pay 80 dollars which is good money at 20 bucks a piece or I would get her 4 hen chicks and give her 50 bucks or so for her trouble.

Hell would freeze over before I paid 150 for 4 chickens that roam my property, but then I am not one to care what a neighbor thinks about the situation either.

Thank you guys so much for the help. We managed to settle on a price. A big Fence is in my future 😒

I'm glad you were able to work things out. A fence sounds like a good plan - not just for the dogs, but to hopefully keep the chickens out of your yard, too.

You know what they say, good fences make for good neighbors.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

once the dogs left your yard, you were liable for the damages.        I'd set up gates or whatever in the house to block access to the front door while you work on training to stop the dogs from charging the door.    

and, $30/chicken is definitely on the high side unless they were purebred birds of known pedigree and value.     The going rate in most areas for laying hens is $15-20 each.
