I just need a little sympathy. We got 50 chicks on Friday. They are all gone now. Something broke into the chicken house and ate them all in the middle of the morning (about 10 AM). We were right here in the house, and I had just been out there and checked on them. I was going to go back out in a little and clean out their waterers, so I latched the door but I didn't lock the little sliding lock at the top. It did latch though. Something pushed it open, ate them all without us seeing, and then left the door open which my son noticed. I am soooo mad I have been crying all day. I cannot believe that something could get into there with the door latched, and eat all 50 chicks on top of that. We found three of them buried under the wood chips that whatever it was must have missed. I am pretty sure it was a dog.
