I went to close up the coop and was missing one of my daughters(she's 12)hens. I went crazy looking for the girl. It finally dawned on me. They never run off. I went to the dog pen (6 ft high, very large pen) and there my 2 beagle were looking at me. I looked over and there was a pile of feathers, a few feet away, a carcass. Poor girl. They did not even know they did wrong. I had a hard time not killing them because I knew my daughter would be devastated. She cried . I know it's instict but I can still be mad at them. un At least she is doing better. I couldn't find dinner in the fridge. I was talking out loud to myself and said "where the heck is the chicken". She said "it's out in the dog run". Poor girl.
