    We have a 140lb dog that has figured out how to open sliding glass doors if they aren't locked, so it's not uncommon for us to come home and find him wandering around outside. When we came home it didn't cross our minds that anything was wrong when our dog was out and about. I went to close the chickens up for the night and noticed they weren't in there coop. I thought to myself OH Great, a predator got my flock. I quickly round up 6 of the 10 chickens and figured the other four were either scattered or the predator had a big meal. Woke up in the morning, and saw 3 of the 4 missing girls wandering around. I went to work and got a text message from my wife saying there was a chicken in our house. Apparently, when the fox/coyote attacked....one of the chickens decided to take refuge through the door that our dog kindly left open. When we came in from looking at night, we shut the door, trapping the chicken inside and it was quite content with it's new coop. I laughed the rest of the day through work when I thought about one of our hens wandering around in our family room. Hope this gave you a good chuckle!
