I know it was a jack russell terrier with a collar (possibly blue?). I called the RSPCA who transferred me to police as the council rangers were no longer working at the time. I myself had come back home from my part time job (I'm a uni student). Because I had to go over some things as I didn't do well in my exams, my mum went to feed the chicken only to find feathers scattered all over the coop.
I don't really know what to do to be honest and I also kinda want to throw up. The dog had jumped into our house (I live in the suburbs) and then after attacking the chicken, jumped out of the coop and run out, I assume it also jumped over the fence or slinked through the bars as I heard its barking decrease in volume. (Police told me to keep an eye on it but not to approach it.)
To be clear, my chicken has a little hatch thing (with a roof) which my dad recently removed the door of (to make it easier for her to move in and out). This then opened into a 'fenced off' area, more to keep her out. We never expected that such a thing would ever occur. In fact, I don't even remember ever seeing this dog around.
I'm still waiting on police to take my statement I guess because honestly there's nothing else I can do but I just feel really upset because she (my chicken, Sunshine) was one of my first pets. I had three chickens, one died while young as I was told to feed them rice only (***?!) and then the other ran off when the neighbour's fence broke... so yeah if anyone has any advice it would be really great.
Also please if anyone has any ideas for me to take my mind off this because every time I think of Sunshine I start crying... I'm just really upset because I was attached and yeah I know it was also partly my fault for not constructing a coop that would safely keep predators out but I honestly did not even have such a thought cross my mind at all. Every time I think about my chicken or anything it just really hurts, she was such a friendly chicken and when local birds like pigeons( i think) came she'd be so nice and friendly to them too and it just makes me upset thinking that she might even had been friendly to the dog or something and then it did that to her. And we had just bought two large heads of Chinese cabbage for her because it was her favourite.
I'm sorry if I'm still a bit incoherent right now.
