It's been 2 years since I have been on here, we raised 4 little ladies for almost 6 weeks, and had a dog incident with one of them. Both my husband and I were devastated, we gave away the chickens to a friend at work and vowed never again. Well, we just brought our 4 lovely ladies home today. They are in one of those Tractor Supply coops on the side of the house which has since been professionally fenced off from the dogs. The dogs are inside dogs so I am comfortable with them being outside in their new mansion, and my husband even relocated one of our security cameras so we can see them while we are inside! Giving it another shot.... We have 2 red ladies, Lucy and Reba (McIntire, lol) and a black one named Chewy (Chewbacca)....Jury is still out on our 4th black lady.
