Today was a horrible day. I had an appt with the vet for 10 am to put down our Welsummer that has been unable to walk since the end of August. I took her in and had her downed. Kids sad. Driving home and my husband called. He said the neighbors dog had come over for the THIRD time, this time he had killed our roo and a black australorp was injured. He took the dog back to the owners, again for the third time. I was just shaking mad as I have talked to this guy about this, I didn't go home but straight over there and gave him hell. He said we were free to shoot him. HE is sitting there with a gun, with a dog that has been on our property 3 times already that he can't keep contained and he says that WE have to take care of HIS problem. Because he is too chicken SH**T to do it himself. I am not going to kill a family pet, a nice dog that is just doing what dogs do to pacify his cowardly butt. He basically said he won't get rid of it, and won't kill it. I don't know what to do now. We live on 5 acres in the middle of nowhere. He is 1/2 mile away and our closest neighbor. A jerk anyway but this takes the cake. So we go home, all sad. Putting away laundry, and Junie B. Jones, our roo, walks out of the tall grass. 4 hours later! He is hurt too. Bad punctures on his back near his tail. Remarkably he still has some feathers on his body. From the amount of feathers in the grass I thought there was no way he could be alive. Both the injured chickens are able to walk. We cleaned the injuries we could find with diluted hydrogen peroxide. Then flushed with iodine. Slathered with neosporin. Put them both in isolated cages with aspirin water and food. The BA walks around but often goes to stand by herself. I'm worried about her. So angry and So sad. Our roo was a hero I think. He saved the flock. Fling a prayer or a hope or a positive thought our way. I just can't stand this kind of stuff and am so worried about any punctures we didn't find. The feathers are thick. If I thought they would actually pay I would take them both to the vet and give them the bill. I was so sad about our Welsummer, having to put her down, but it was hard to take care of her now going on 3 months in the house. I come home and it starts all over again. What are we going to do about this guy???????????????????? His wife originally said they would reimburse us for dead animals. Injured ones cost more and are so hard emotionally. Just needed to vent. Thanks for listening chicken people.
