Just three days ago we started letting the chickens out of their coop and run area, and into the yard whenever we would go outside, so we could babysit them, I am always worried about the fox and big birds out here, but my husband said that if we were outside they would be fine. And they were.. Spot (our sweet 1 1/2 yr dog) never paid these chickens any mind. If one came around he would just walk away or go into his house. I stayed close to him these last three days just incase he got a little aggressive toward them. But nothing for three days, so I though I could relax. I was about thirty feet away when I saw Spot walk out from behind some bushes and he had a dying chicken in his mouth! I started yelling and running to him... he dropped her and walked away. There wasn't even a sound!!! I didn't know an attack was happening!!! I brought her over to my husband after putting Spot away, not a scratch on her, he said her neck was broken, Spot must have shook her. I love my dog dearly.. I'm not really beside myself with grief, I am rrrrreally bummed though. Putting my kids to bed tonight was not fun like it usually is. This stinks!
