Im devastated

The neighbors dogs killed my girls. I'm heartbroken and angry. My precious Isa brown Patty, my buff Orpington Sunshine, and my Wyandotte Ethel were killed while I came inside for a potty break. I was just with them! I came outside and saw one of the dogs standing above Ethel and it ran away when I yelled. The only one alive I could find here was Goose the rooster who is injured no doubt trying to protect them. I looked for the others the rest of the day until dark. Two came from across the road, and 2 came to the run door from somewhere. They're safely inside but I'm still missing 2. I'm praying they're alive and are hiding somewhere. I feel so guilty for leaving them for a few minutes.
I am sorry for your losses and the additional anguish you must have felt when you saw the dog still standing over Ethel.

It seems like there is a rash of dogs-killing-chickens posts lately. Too many dog owners fail in their basic responsibility to keep their dogs home and under control (and, yes, I have dogs; mine are securely fenced and only outside when I am with them).

@defazzy is right. Survivors endure a great deal of stress, and it can take a long time for them to feel "normal" again.

Take care of yourself and them. You had no way of knowing your girls were in danger. I hope the missing girls come back, and that everyone else recovers from the trauma. Please keep us posted.
