Hi all! I am in Arizona and have had backyard chickens here for almost five years. The neighborhood I live in is zoned to have up to 10 chickens in a household, and no roosters. We have always had 5-10. I joined this forum after my *new *young flock was massacred by a dog and desperately needed some chicken medical advice. I have moved the survivors to my sister's house since she can guarantee their safety. They will probably live out their lives there with her flock to minimize any more stress on them. And I am back to square one in building up my own flock again.
