I have just had the most disturbing and disheartening occurrence take place. Neighboring dog came into my property and killed 18 of my chickens. I do have trail cameras up, so I do know the dogs and who they belong to. The problem that I have is that the owners of these dogs, say that they are just chickens. I have some really high priced GPS dogs, and I really hate for anyone to harm them, but my rationale to these people is, if my dog came across the fence and killed and destroyed your baby calf or cow, would it still be only that they are just a calf. I do not want to ruin the opportunity to become a good neighbor, but I will not tolerate another of my chickens to be killed and thought of as just chickens. My wife is retired and this is such a great hobby/retirement source of relaxation. We had one of the chickens that was injured very badly and eventually died, had another buddy that just stayed by her side, very sad. This is what makes med so mad and angry. I do not want to kill others dogs, but I can't keep replacing chickens and having people thinking of them as "just chickens". This really has me bumbed out.
