I brought my Hens home 3 weeks ago. My dog jumped into the cage and squished two of them. I think my mom felt sorry for me and bought me 5 more hens. I now have 14 hens. They range in age from three weeks to five or six weeks. I can't wait for them to get into their new coop probably next week.

Welcome to BYC :frow Glad you joined the flock! I'm sorry to hear about the mishap with the dog. I hope it's behaving itself and staying away from the chicks now!

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 Backyard chickens. It's usually best if dogs/cats and chicks NEVER meet. It usually ends up very badly for the chicks.
