What I need to know is how much these hens are to replace, how much to tell my neighbor he owes us for replacement cost.  He told David he would pay replacement cost to us, so I need to know how much they would cost?


Thanks in advance



Are you free ranging these chickens?  You're going to need to up the security that you have because there are other predators that can take your chickens even if the boxer is locked up.
