Well a dog has killed and taken our chickens 3 or 4 times this being the 4th time. This morning I was thawing the nipple waterer for bantam coop and I had forgotten to close the gate and after I came back 4 or 5 of the chickens had gotten out so I just left the gate open so the birds would get back in eventually. Then a few minutes ago one of us saw a dog chasing the birds that were out. So now we have 4 live birds left and one carcass with no blood anywhere on it or our property, There were 12 birds in there!how can 1 dog get rid of 8 birds?!!
