    ALL my chickens are dead... flock eradicated. No eggs coming now [​IMG]

    And you guessed it. My trained, sweet, 'keep away from the chickens' dogs killed them. Which one... or all of them? I dont know. They're all suspects.

    SO I'm out of the chicken business for the foreseeable future. Maybe next year. 'Guess, I'll be turning the chicken tractor into a greenhouse. Good thing it's tall [​IMG]

    You know what they say - "Shat happens."

    Anybody want some dogs? I hear they are tasty on the grill.

    Davaroo. We are so disappointed in you. First that you have unruly dogs, even more unruly than you. Second, that you would give up chickens. I say grill the pooches and get chicks, ASAP.

    Dave, buddy, I'm so sorry! In the future, if you'd like some Barred Rock or Orpington eggs, I'll be happy to send you some. [​IMG]

    Dave! You still have time to raise up some chicks before cool weather hits the Carolinas!

    Sorry to hear about your chickens..[​IMG]

    The dogs had fun chasing and playing.[​IMG]

    My Corgi will lick them to death but not chase them! The Yorkie though takes on the Peacocks! [​IMG] They generally jump him and he learns for a time.

    Get a big mean rooster. Mine (roo) chases the pygmy goats. [​IMG]

    Oh Dave...say it isn't so! I was so hoping this was just a 'kiddin' post!!

    I say get on the phone and get you some chicks ordered today. You know the old saying... sometimes it takes the 'hair of the dog' to make you feel better. (pun intended...)
