I don't know if this belongs here-- feel free to move this topic or even delete it if you find it inappropriate. We had an amazing flock-- an amazing coop. Had them for YEARS. Just started raising a beautiful royal palm turkey too. The coop has survived coyotes, cats, huskies, hawks... but not a tiny terrier dog that dug into our yard and into the coop and slaughtered most of our chickens (and the turkey). 11 birds died in total. We have just one little golden sebright left. She's unharmed, thank goodness. We came back home to corpses and feathers everywhere and this tiny dog in the middle of it all. How he killed them all himself is beyond me. The neighbor said this was the first time he'd been without a shock collar on, and well, this happened. I don't believe in shock collars and I'm pretty sure this woman uses the shock collar as an excuse not to actually handle/train her dog. The grief I feel is unimaginable. I don't know where to talk to about this. People think I'm nuts for loving fowl as much as I do. I am just so angry and mortified. I feel like I just lost a big chunk of my family-- I can't stop crying. I feel terrible for my Sebright (Dolly) especially-- she is all alone now and I don't know if I should get more chickens with that dog around. This dog is completely new to the neighborhood, it seems.. I feel like I messed up somehow. Even though we secured our fence and coop in every way possible-- but that dog literally digs like a rabbit. Should we have cemented everything to..?? was that a big mistake--? We usually don't have burrowing predators around here so we never expected this...! How do you handle things like this? Is this my fault?? We're keeping the sebright inside with us-- she is very sweet but she seems VERY depressed..
