Got home yesterday evening, went to go check on my chickens since this past weekend we moved the babies into the "Big House" with the others, and I notice everyone's quiet, spread apart, not "harassing" each other (odd ), looked over to where the babies were "huddled" and there's only 5!! I'm missing 2! Call my dh & youngest ds to help me, we look all in the coop, run, under the coop house, out in the yard (even though they are not let out of their yard unless we are home) just in case they got out .... , we can't find them anywhere!!!! These are ones that I raised since they were 1 day old!!! My husband says it's time we get a dog, not a big dog, a small to medium dog because obviously our Cats (who do not bother the chickens at all, if they get too close, the cats get yelled at by the chickens and pecked at but yet will bring them lizards to "share" ) are not watching over them. So any suggestions on a good dog breed that won't go after my babies??? Also, we have an inground pool, so we cant have a water loving or long haired dog!
