Today a catouhua dog broke into our yard. We live on a county road on 250 acres but have fenced in a small portion so live stock cannot intrude. This is where I have let out our six 11 week old chicks to roam during the day. People seem to think that the country is a great place to drop off their unwanted dogs. I heard my chickers peeping and went out to see this dog. I picked up a stick and finally got him out of the yard but he would not be driven away. I called my husband at work and he came home and lured him into the cattle trailor and drove him to the animal shelter. NOW out of my six I have four! There are no feathers and no dead chicks that we can find. I don't know what to think about that. The pasture is shredded but there is a wooded area that has brush and weeds also. It's nightfall now. Will I ever see the missing two again???
