    Is this because of insurance too?
    I'm too far and I'm sure rotts are a breed that is hard on insurance rates. Are there any friends you can loan her to for a week or so, maybe she could even rotate from house to house each week. Then no one would really have to say they own her. it would take about 4-5 houses willing to share the dog. Then each house could have a specific week of the month that they got the dog.

    The family talked to the old man next door. He is convinced his dog is perfect... this Guy is 80+ with possible mental health issues. They are taking turns with taking his dog out on the leash so that the old man doesn't just let him loose. Dozer (my Pitbull) is fine. I ended up with scratched up legs but that was it. I hate seeing a dog chained up but chained is better than letting it terrorize a whole town!
    And still no eggs from my chickens!!

    I don't know Em, you might have to actually take some action on this. Here is to hoping it all works out, but it seems like a time bomb to me.

    Wow, those are great pics and I love how tidy their area is. I wish we had more grass instead of weeds in the chicken yard, but one thing at a time.
    Welcome and good luck with your coop!

    Here are my chicks at two weeks old. Surprisingly, they aren't causing as much trouble as my past experiences with chicks at this age. Pictures may be blurry.

    Blue wheaten ameraucana/barred rock mix ( I'm thinking rooster )

    Blue ameraucana (I think this one is a pullet)

    I think this one is a Splash ameraucana. I can't tell, but the color seems to light to be blue(I also think this one is a rooster)

    There is another chick, but that's the one with scissor beak and the injured foot. I didn't want to move it. But it's a black ameraucana and I think it's a female. My dad and I are betting (in a way) on how many males and females and which ones are males or females. I feel pretty confidant :)

    I am a little ocd with our coops and pasture. Plus alpacas don't eat grass down to the dirt, so our grass stays pretty nice.

    Ooooh, I hope you all are right! :fl Margaret is somewhere around 16-19 weeks old now, if I'm counting right. I do wonder why she decided to beat up one of the cockerels and then has since been so mild and mellow, though. :confused:
