    Hi I am so sorry about your dog attack, I just went through this a few weeks ago. One of our hens was killed well not at first she was ripped up real bad and we had to kill her. It was awful. Mine flew all over the place we had to go find them, thats when we found the hurt one. You may want to go see if you can find them you could have a injured one out there some where.

    I sure hope you hurt the dog. I have to say I went and bought a bb gun and now when I see a dog on my property I let them have it. I am very sick of people letting there dogs run free on everybody elses property. I am also a dog owner I love dogs but mine do not fun all over the place. Let us know if you get them all back.[​IMG]
