I have a quad that needs a new home.
It's been a rough couple of weeks My neighbor's great pyrenees got through my fence and killed a couple of my black australorps.. My bared rocks and the rest of my australorps still won't leave the run, even with the gate open and I offer them feed. ( in the run they will eat out of my hands and fly up onto my shoulder). Any advice on how long they will remain afraid to free range again if ever?
Welcome to the thread!
That is horrible about the loss of your hens and the trauma to the survivors. Poor girls.
I would leave the run open and just go about my business. They may come on out if they can see you there being normal. I think I would be scared too if I thought giant dogs were waiting to kill me! My australorps are pretty smart about stuff like that.
