I use to love dogs, but today when we got home there were two dogs going after my rooster, that changed my perspective on dogs. They managed to get ahold of him from outside the run and pull him right through the chicken wire. The worst part was that my daughters saw the whole thing. My 8 year old was screaming. I managed to run the dogs off, but it was too late. He was so badly hurt and torn up there was no question about what had to be done. I told the girls to go inside and waited for my wife to get out of sight before I did anything. Luckily my two bantam cochins that were free ranging all day made it to safety, but I was worried when I couldn't find them for a while. I was relieved not to see any white feathers in the yard. They eventually came back unharmed. They have survived opposum attacks and now a dog attack.
