    woke up this morning to two big friggen Azzhole dogs in my very Coop & run .they killed everyone of my 17 chickens . The kids & me put SO much effort into these guys for almost 6 months ... they were spoonfed snacks , would balance on one hand ... came individuallt when we called them .. I'm still so ticked everytime I see the little bodies in my mind .. best chickens ever killed by two hella goofy retarded looking dogs .

    I'm trying SOOOOO hard not to blam hubz . told him atleast 20 times .. I bought the heavy wire to go around the run , please put it there . .. he always acted like I was just trying to give him sucker busy work, I bit my tongue soo hard to not blame his lazy rump .. but between me and you .. it is 90 % his fault .. and the rest is for me cause I didn't like to lock them inthe coop
    my Fav fat girl was bigger then any tday turkey we've ever had and one of them had layed 2 eggs already.

    You can put up the fence (unless you have a physical problem). I fence all the time, moving pens, pulling t-posts, pounding post and pulling fence. Maybe if you start.............your DH will help you.

    That's usually how it works here. And if he doesn't have time to help, it's OK. I do it myself. I totally understand, though, that if you have physical limitations that you can't do it. Sorry to hear about your birds. What became of the dogs?

    oh...what a bummer. i am always asking my husband to do stuff and he used to disagree with me thinking i was going overboard or being a worrier but i have been right more times than not so now when i ask him to make the coop/run as predator proof as possible and he tries to disagree with me i tell him "well, if we lose our chickens because you didn't do it you will not hear the end of it"...he knows it is not worth the months of headache for him not to spend the extra hour safeguarding the coop/run.
