I've read several posts like the one I'm about to make here. I was foolish enough to think it wouldn't happen to me. If only I ran outside the first time I heard squawking. I have a RIR roo with some issues. Long story short he was recovering slowly. I have been keeping him on my porch. I started letting him outside to walk around and work up his muscles. And I've been giving him a hen to hang out with. So today I had him and a hen out in the yard wandering around. I was in here online. I heard somw squawking outside and I figured maybe they were just having a tiff and I let it go. But then I heard it again, and my dogs got upset. I thought I better check into this. I went out back and to my horror my neighbors dog was in my chicken pen just grabbing chickens. I grabbed shoes and ran out yelling NO! Stop! I was horrified to see my birds laying all about. I grabbed him by his collar and marched him back home. I screamed at the house, "Is anyone home?" I went to the side door and pounded on it. The girl who lives there came to the door. I said HE JUST KILLED MY CHICKENS! She said, Oh. I'm sorry I would've gone after him but I have a baby sleeping inside. I couldn't believe her reply. I mean I understand about kids sleeping, But it was asleep. You were just going across the street to get your darn dog! So i went back to assess the damage. He killed 2 10 week old Amber sex link Roosters. 4 16 week old RIR pullet 1 7 week old Black Australorp pullet. I have 2 severely injured birds, a RIR pullet and another Roo(my favorite of the lot.) Another RIR pullet who I think will be ok. And a RIR Roo who is MIA. The guy who owns the dog came over and aplogized. He said he would pay for the bird. But there is no $ I can put on their value to me. These were my first chickens. I was getting soooo close to egg laying time after waiting all these weeks. I don't know if the injured birds are going to make it. I'm so upset. I don't blame the dog. I am a dog lover, and I know it happens. But I'm just so sad right now. His dog busted through the chicken wire in the coop, then went out into the run. Fortunately my other 3 black australorps, and my 4 Bantams were smart enough to hide in some stuff I had leaning against the wall. What do you suppose those birds would be worth?
