I found red feathers yesterday out by my coop, and told my husband that I had lost a hen. I have noticed that I have been losing chickens. I hatched out 10 andalusians, and only have 4 left. I have 5 partridge cochins and only have 1 left. I thought that maybe a racoon or opposum or something had been getting my birds. Today I came home (I care pool) from work my friends drop me off, and the next thing I know they came pulling in the drive way. They said " we know what are happening to your chickens", and they pull my beautiful splash andalusian rooster out of the truck. He is gone ripped to shreds. They caught the neighbors dogs running down the road with my chicken. I put my poor rooster in the back of my truck, and take off for the guys house. There are his dogs, I hop out go to the back of my truck. I pull out my chicken, and said" your dogs are killing my chickens they just got caught with one of my birds in their mouth. I told him to pen his dogs up because the next time I will shoot his dogs if they come back onto my property. I told him I would kill them, and then deliver them to him". I am hot. I have lost so many chickens to this dog. I have told this neighbor two or three times now to please keep his dogs penned. The first time it happened last winter I filled the dogs butt full of bird shot. I didn't want to kill it, I just wanted to scare it. It didn't come back for a while. My husband took the guns away after that. Anyway, I am writing up a bill and I am taking it to my neighbor. I just need to know how do you put a price on chickens that you hatched yourself. I also wanted to make sure that I couldn't get into trouble for threatening to kill this guys dogs. I spoke with the sherriff, and he said that he didn't blame me. Told me I could get into trouble because I am protecting my animals on my property. I said"good because I will kill his dog, and deliver it to him". I am a dog lover, but this guys dogs are becoming a wild pack. It just isn't me it's also my other neighbors animals they are messing with.
