    because she almost took a chicks head off. One of my pretty little Anconas was sticking her head out of the fence trying not to go back into the coop. It took me and Chelsea about 15 minutes to convince them to come outside. They stayed outside for about 5 hours. I kept an eye on them. They mostly stayed under the coop because the oldest chickens would take their food. They look so cute wandering around outside.

    Oh it gets worse! My pop called me and told me Molly was in the chicken yard! Thank goodness we put the girls back in their coop and only the 3 oldest chickens were out. Foggy, Rowdy and Rocky. Well she didn't mess with the chickens this time. In fact Rowdy was chasing her! Well, we had this watermelon (the girls love it!) and I was taking it to the kitchen sink to cut it up for them when I saw Molly and Rufus in the chicken yard!! I screamed for my husband as I took the steps. To get into the chicken yard you have to go through this shed. They were on top of Rocky. I just knew my old girl was dead. She wasn't moving or anything. And I forgot to add that my 6'4" tall husband (short legs, long torso) jumped the fence! He chased both dogs out of the yard. Chelsea heard us and came running. She put the two dogs in the big white shed. Dan picks up Rocky because she wasn't moving. He placed her in the shed she and the boys live in and she bounce right up! She was playing possum. Silly girl! Dan fixed up the fence they came over with some good old fashioned barbed wire! I love my dogs but........

    Rufus didn't hurt Rocky I just think he thought it was a giant toy. But I gots my eye on him.

    Ok...the other day....3 ancona's got loose. They must have found that spot in the fence where it is messed up. But once again Molly behaved.
