So I've lost almost 20 birds, mostly chicks, to some mysterious huskies but chased them and found their home last night and had a serious talking to with their owners. The good news is he's reimbursed us but the bad news is that he says they get through everything, even chain link. And even a simultaneous up/down lever that goes both directions at once. We're considering barbed wire or an electric fence but I'm skeptical that an electric fence will keep them out. I'll scour this forum for suggestions to prior posts but we need a solution, I haven't been getting much sleep at all. I've had chickens since the first weekend in April and now have had 3 attacks/kills. I lost 5 chicks last night and there is no apparent entry point, they just disappeared, I'm thinking a smaller animal?? From now on, all chicks live in the garage until they're old enough for the Big Girl House. We've called Animal Control the first time since I saw the dogs IN the pen. However, we didn't see them during the 2nd attack, didn't see what got the chicks last night (no bodies, one loose outdoors--no obvious entry point), but found the dogs on our property twice, licking their chops. I've been up since 2 am and will remain on-guard until the solution is worked out. I'm hoping for your input on barbed wire vs. electric fence??
