First of all, I live in town, and just found this amazing roo who only crows in the morning till about 9am. So I had been crating him at night, and putting him out during the day. It was like a dream come true to me to have a roo at my house. Anyway, the dog that killed him is our GSP. Yes, we have a bird hunting dog and chickens. Not a good combo, but it is what it is. I didn't fully latch the door behind me, and he got it open and jumped the gate, and by the time I got over to him, the roo was crushed. If only someone had a non-chicken farm that would take him, I would get rid of him in a heartbeat. It's not really his fault-he's bred to go after birds. It's more my fault than anyone's. Anyway, just had to share with my fellow BYCers.
