This is the worst day of chicken raising! Yesterday I went out to my two story coop and saw my little dog in the window up top. I saw him and my heart sank because I knew that to get up there he had to pass by the chickens. I tried to prepare myself. I got to the coop and saw two chickens outside so i grabbed them and went inside. I saw three more chicks huddled under the stairs in the corner. Then I saw my little eater egger laying on the floor. I couldnt help it. I started balling and had to leave the room. I was so upset all day. I had named her Bella and she was by far my favorite. She would come run to me and sit on my shoulder. Not only was I mad that she had died but it made me even more mad because I have no idea how my dog got inside. When I calmed down enough to look around i saw that all of the doors were shut and locked. Its a mystery! A very aggrivating one. Today I am going to the store to buy combination locks so this never happens again!!! It is suspicion that my neighbors who range from age 8-3 opened the door and somehow locked my dog inside. If or when I find out what really happened i will This is my first time owning or raising chickens and so far it hasnt been going to well. I was really looking forward to getting beautiful bluish eggs. I was so depressed yesterday I wanted to give up but I've since realized that I've put a lot of hard work into these chicks and I love them. I was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere that I could get chickens that are already a few months or so old. Preferably easter eggers. Thanks.
