    Danad, I really hope you are taking pictures of your damaged property and murdered birds. I would so be taking this to court even after I shot the dog.

    where i live if someone else dog is on your propetry you can shot, right them and there, even if theyy were doing anything you still can as they are on your propetry. When someones dogs kept killing my chickens, we talked to him and he wouldnt listen. the only reason the dogs werent dead is because they were really sweet and just needed simeone better ro take care of them. So the sherieff qent diwn and told him exactly what i said above and i could of charged them for all the money i lost. I didnt still not sure why but i didnt.

    Indiana law states that if a domestic pet is in your yard doing damage to property or livestock they can be put down.

    The poultry show in Bloomington is free.

    Thanks guys, for the support!! I was told from the sherif that I can shoot, I just wish I'd been better prepared! Turns out it had been killing my other neighbors guinnies and the owners had thrown them on a burn pile! Oh and I live in the county( someone asked). We'll see what happens today when I start hounding animal control!!!

    Well, the weeds sure think it's a heavenly spot! If I ever get them all cleared out I'd consider taking pics -- until then, it ain't so pretty! [​IMG]

    If I had your flock I'd put them on an all flock or starter/grower feed and offer oyster shell for calcium supplement. You've got enough birds that aren't laying that they don't need the extra calcium in the layer feed. I have my flock on an all flock feed just for my rooster :)

    Chicken Education :) that's funny! CE=continuing education I have to have 16 hours every 2 years to keep my vet tech liscence current and I missed last year so...
