Thanks for all the comforting words Thanks John, but those dang dogs only got my hens. All three rooster boys are still alive and kicking. One of the dogs is an American Bulldog/Pit mix (I posted pictures earlier on this thread) and she and Winnie got them cornered. Most were just severely injured, which was worse. Thank you, but I'm not sure I want chickens any more. I guess I'm just being sentimental, but after hand raising them and treating them like pets, and then seeing them die...It just makes me sad. Oh my! Unfortunately that doesn't deter my MIL...I don't turn on the AC until it reaches 90 outside, so for the first part of the summer I mostly go around in a t-shirt and underwear. She will come over and then ASK ME to put on clothes. Like I should be ashamed to go about my house in that. I did have Zach have a talk with her about letting us know when she is coming so I can secure the dogs. She let me know that she "feels unwelcome" and "won't be coming back."
