My DD19 got a pure lab dog as a gift from boyfriend. Told her that if the dog grew up to be aggressive to chickens it would have to go or she would have to buy a kennel for her. She threw a fit and said no kennel. I said ok we will see how she does tied up. all was well (7 -8 months).... until we went to town and to family supper. when we got home Sofie(the lab) was chewing on something in the yard and not tied up obviously had gotten loose somehow. Well... it was Clair one of my original hens I started off with and had a comb injury(that is why we know it is her). I injured my back and have been in allot of pain and I have a high pain tolerance, so for me to be down is bad. I went out to the coop and gave a quick look and the rest of chickens looked upset but ok. as far as I could tell. Picked up Clair got the "chicken hospital" out and treated her wounds. She didnt look too bad no real "puncture" wounds but you can tell she had been gnawed on and feathers pulled out. She was mostly in shock I think. she seems to be doing ok. Then today DD13 goes to feed and water and finds a feathered wing and bone in the coop. Evidentially Sofie had already killed and eaten at least one of my black EE hens that I just finally started getting colored eggs from. I am so p***ed because I am hurt and cant go out and do anything. DR thinks I may have herniated a disc. So wants me off my feet and icing my back and do nothing till I see him again tomorrow. Hoping it is just irritated the nerves and rest and ice will reduce swelling and reduce pain. Wanted me off work all week of course I said no way so we compromised on 1 day. My DD13 was with me and he said I know you have chickens and rabbits and allot to do and need to not do anything. DD13 pipes up and says "I will do it all for her" What a wonderful young lady I have!! not sure what to do. I wouldn't let chickens out today. I am just so frustrated. end of rant for now.
