I just scared 2 dogs out of my yard. One was in the coop tearing the feathers out of my EE and she had her head jammed so far into the trusses I thought I needed a crowbar to get her head out. So he literally kept going at her and she was defenseless! My poor rooster is now rumpless. He's so sweet that he probably high tailed it away from them. I am still missing a beautiful bantum blue cochin hen. The dog that was in the coop was only about 30lbs and didn't bite them luckily! He only ripped feathers out. The one that was in my yard I don't even know if it went near the chickens or just finished chasing some into the woods. He looked confused as to why I was yelling at him. He looked like a sweetheart. I love dogs so it was hard for me to yell at him and chase them and throw rocks. It's those darn eyebrows I think. He was kinda saying "What's the matter. I'm sorry. Why are you mad at me." I'm too soft. grrrr....I hope Souffle comes home. She was (is) so sweet. She lets you pick her up and doesn't squawk about it.
