Thank you! I had four chickens a few months ago but they free ranged on my property during the day and my neighbor's dog got them :hit so lesson learned and know we have a proper set up and got 3 wellies today!

Welcome to BYC!

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

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas (blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me). If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

Sorry for your loss. I'm sure the neighbor didn't learn a thing. Be aware his dog will be back and trying to get your new birds.  Welcome to Backyard chickens.

They most definitely did not. We told them about it and their dogs chase our horses which is infuriating. We asked them to put them up and they told us that we must be new to country living because dogs always run around out here and that's just how it is. They said if it happened again we could "do what we have to do" basically saying to shoot them 😡 I built a backyard for my dogs because I was TERRIFIED they would wonder off and get shot. But apparently being a responsible pet owner is too difficult for some. Ughhhh.

Hi and welcome - sounds like a rocky start to keeping chickens but I'm sure you'll get there in the end!

All the best

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
