So my dog who has never killed anything but does like to chase things came out of the brooder room looking very please and licking her chops. (my daughter left the door open) I literally almost had a heart attack. I thought for sure she ate the 3 silkie babies I just hatched out. I ran in...and all 3 were just hanging out! I was confused...then later I saw the door open again and my dogs head in the brooder box and the sound of lips smacking...this time i knew she was eating the chickies. I screamed and ran in...Hurley's head popped up looking guilty and her mouth covered in chick feed!! Then my daughter was holding one of the chicks and hurley came in just licked the baby and walked out. I think its official...I can trust my dog!
