Hello, 3 weeks ago 2 neighborhood dogs scaled my fence and killed all 9 of my 1 year old laying girls. Now I'm supposed to put a price on them for the owner to compensate me. I have no idea what to say they were worth. These girls were my babies and would come to me when called. Any help would be appreciated. I'm heart broken.

Gasp! I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Tears are welling up and a lump is forming in my throat. I can’t imagine. I’m so sorry.
As far as compensation... I have no idea. But those dogs and their owner should be reported.

The value of a one year-old laying hen is about fifteen dollars, if you got them from a hatchery and they weren't labelled "rare."

I am sorry for your loss.

Welcome to BYC. Wish it was under better circumstances.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I can not imagine how awful that would be.

I looked in a catalog and they had started chicken pellets that are between 15-22 weeks of age starting at $22.99 - $27.49. This does not count shipping.

check With other hatcheries and see what they sell for and it will give you an idea.

There is no way to put a price on the pets and how they came to you. Pets are priceless.

I'm so sorry for your lost, that's absolutely heartbreaking. I recently lost 3 hens, but I could never imagine losing all of them. I'm so sorry. Are the dogs owned by anyone, and if so, is there any way to locate the owners?
