In the Brooder
- Dec 16, 2010
Last week, a dog or dogs, dug into my coop and killed all my chickens. When I got home from work, there was a hole dug under the gate of my backyard and one of my six dogs popped out to say hi to me. I first thought that my dog was the killer. I contemplated taking her behind the barn and putting her down the hard way. My wife was understandably upset about her chickens. She loved her chickens. I allowed the dog to live. I went out and looked at the hole was dug and came to the conclusion that the hole wasnt big enough for a labrador retriever. My wife saw three dogs running the road the other day. A medium sized mutt and two smaller terriers. I now have my suspects. Note to stray dogs: you want to live, stay away. Thanks, just needed to vent. Oh yeah, I buried field fence around the perimeter to deter any more digging.
