Thanks to all for setting me on the right path. I lost 3 young birds yesterday( 7weeks old-almost broke my wife's heart ) to a mother dog who lives down the street. I'm convinced I will never rear another bird until I can build a highly protected coop!
I'm still hurt and upset about the incident since dog owners in my lil' part of Fl. just don't care what happens to others property. Sorry to go on...I'll speak more later...thanks for listening!

@Chix learner , I'm so sorry to hear about your birds! If you stay around BYC for a while, you'll see a lot of losses are caused by dogs. And unfortunately, too often the dog's owner won't take responsibility for their animals. That leaves it up to us to keep our chickens as well protected as we can. Take a look over on the coop/run forum of BYC and get some ideas for predator-proofing.

And it's good to be aware of the predators that love to get ahold of our chickens, so take a look at this too:

Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

aren't dogs supposed to be fenced in or leashed at all times? I persomnally think cats should be similarly restricted
