    Oct 28th Neighbors dog dug in, and out of our pheasant area and mauled all 3 chinese crested - I was mad as hell as I've had trouble with this guy for yrs, But my beau calmed me down and we let it slide.

    And now , again Nov.28-29 this same neighbors dog found his was into the coop run, and house after I had let them out for the day-
    Mauled, and killed 20 hens and roosters.

    As follows: 9 Red sussex x layer hens - Just 5 mos old and laying
    2 White pure silkie roosters
    1 Black pure silkie hen
    1 white pure silkie hen
    1 Red pure silkie hen - Yes seems the silkies I got for my beau were almost wiped out- still have 3 - one of each color (1 roo)
    1 pure La Fleche rooster, of course the more gorgeous one.
    1 OE rooster-.
    1 white layer hen
    1 Buff layer hen (from SweetChicks- Blanche)
    1 Banty x roo
    1 Purebred Silver Seabright roo

    I've listed them as sexed, if that's going to help in pricing at all.

    May have to put down a tom bronze turkey too yet, as of this morn.
    So, how do I figure out the costs to charge this guy,
    besides the definate decrease in egg production? Breeding? Feed costs? Are all these taken into consideration?

    We were up to a dozen, finally a day, as the Sussex are just laying now. At 5 mos old.
    All the ones we lost were this years hatches except 2 older hens.

    And i'm also charging for the chinese crested pheasants too, this time. I bought them for $7.00 ea as day olds.

    So- Please help us decide on an amount to charge him, and maybe he'll finally keep his 4 dogs in his own yard!
