    Hi Sally, nice to meet you. As a new members greeter, I hear daily, of dogs(cats) massacring chicks- usually it is the owners pet that is the predator. I feel compelled to say dogs/ cats and chickens should NEVER meet. Even when pets are just 'playing,' it's the chickens that end up dead - no fun in that!
