I am so stupid. I had my chickens in their pen and my dog jumped or climbed the fence and killed three chickens. This is the same dog that ate the chicks. I almost hate the dog... but then I remember... she is just a dog. I am guessing she got a taste of chicken from the chicks and is now a confirmed chicken killer. Probably nothing to do about changing that now. So, it is clear that I can't even THINK of free ranging the chickens. I thought they would be safe in their run... but my dog can climb anything. My plan is to get a kennel with a top for the dogs. I saw one at Petsmart yesterday. When the chickens are in their pen, the dog goes into the special kennel. AND I am going to have to figure out how to put a top on the chicken run. It is really high, so I thought they would be safe. Dang this makes me mad. Poor little Dominiques.
