    had a pup (Border collie x heeler) that played too hard with birds that killed a couple. Now she has coon & possum to 'worry to death', doesn't play with the birds too much now.

    My dog has (only) killed one of mine but he took another for a long walk (she survived with no damage) and he recently got my roo as well and managed to pluck him pretty good. [​IMG]

    I have lost 3 to my dogs. My dogs do not mess with the adult birds, but if they get a hold of a chick, it's a gonner. I had to buy a new cage for the little ones. The last cage had a tray that pulled out and the dogs worked the tray out and got a couple of birds. The new tray is made differently and they cannot do this. (My adult birds are bigger than my dogs!)

    Zero for now. My dog HATES other dogs and doesn't care about chickens in the slightest.

    Zero for my dogs. I have two Great Pyrenees sisters that I have had since they were a year old. Someone gave them to a vet to rehome and my daughter fell in love with them. I showed them my chickens and leashed them everyday for a week or so to walk with me feeding. Turned them loose after a week and crossed my fingers. Now they are the protectors of my chickens AND my grand-daughter! Sometimes I believe they even know what I'm saying while I feed the fowl and mutter to myself. I've seen them look at each other with that " we better look after the old guy" look:p

    18 of my 11 week olds lost to the neighbors dogs on July 27th of this year. They were my first chickens and I had hatched them myself.
