We live on 8 acres and allowed my kids friends to try their hand at raising rock cornish chicks here.They had 170 in a moveable pen and have been doing great for weeks.Yesterday it rained all day.When the guys came to feed the chicks half were dead......not cuz of weather.....my chihuahua was IN the pen killing them!!!!! We didn't even know he was outside [raining]. I had enjoyed those chicks so much I ordered 25 RI Reds that ship on Nov 5th. Now I think I might cancel,if they let me. The pen wasn't the sturdiest,but still, our devil dog was very determined.I'm not sure I should subject more chicks to a possible encounter with him.Any advise? Anyone else with pet issues? sign me "Disappointed"
