I'm sad to share that one of our eight chickens, the black Australorp named Black Beauty, was killed by our two dogs this evening. We like to let our girls free range a few hours a day, but have two dogs that we have to put in their kennel cages when we let the girls out. One of dogs is the one that killed our first 10 two week old chicks in their brooder box in the garage, so we've been extra careful. DW took dogs for a walk. I told her to put the dogs in their cages when she got back, as I was going to let the hens free range in our backyard, but she forgot. Poor Black Beauty had a bunch of feathers ripped out and I found her in very poor shape on the ground, appearing to have a broken neck. I picked her up and tried to make her comfortable. She died a minute or two after I found her. My DD was very sad. We buried her with some roses DD picked. Dogs and chickens just don't mix. Zero room for error. I sure wish we had dogs that could co-exist with our chickens. Could've been worse, I suppose. The other seven are fine.
