I let my 5 hens out to feed today after the storms passed here in Ga. I put my dogs up in a pen then let my hens out. Looked back outside and a dog killed one of my Domqu. But my BA's were ok. The other Domqu didn't come back in the yard for about 2 hrs. I thought it was gone too. I hate it those 2 hens were old and had not laid in about 2 yrs. but the boys pawpaw gave them to us. And they really loved them.
So Sorry .. Did the dog get out ? or the hen get in ? .
Dogs some cant be trained ..
Can you get a new hen / pullet for the child in the spring ?in the spring ?
