Thank god the dog was removed! My husband told them he would call if the dog was not gone within the hour. Pepper had tried to go broody 2 days before but I broke her😥 now I regret doing it! As for my dog, she would have been torn apart buy a pit. Even though she's big but older.
So many thoughts went through my head ..... What if? When I started with my flock I never thought I would love them so much! Of course more than others. She was the best! Trusted me fully! I luckily have a spitting image of her daughter ! She's not a full breed. She even lays same eggs but not much on the broody side yet. Not like her momma! Pepper would raise her chicks for 10-12 weeks. Here I go on with a novel! Sorry !! If anyone can push me in the right direction to get ahold of some eggs I would be forever grateful.
I understand neighbors pit bulls coming and killing flocks all to well. The day before Easter, guess who came over? 3 immediately dead (my 3 favorite) and the fourth was heavily injured, died 2 days later. One was my welsummer named sunny. It was a sad week in our house.
Wow, what a wonderful thread! You peeps are very kind ! I'm sorry to hear other stories it's sad! Never in my life would I have thought I would miss a hen! I know it's a dogs instinct. It's just the dogs who have not been treated right and or are breed for fighting. I feel bad for the dogs as well. When a owner can't be responsible. Then we all loose our little friends. As we all know Intel you have chickens you don't understand the love you put into your flock
