https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=506635#p506635 I am starting to think maybe it wasn't the dog I thought it was.... My little Red SIlkie Bantum is gone. He disappeared out of the coop yesterday afternoon. All I found were a few feathers inside, nothing outside. I had kept the bantys in the brroder longer because they were so small and just put them out day before yesterday. They were scared of the bigger chicks and were keeping to the corners. I think my dog may have pushed the wire in a couple inches with her nose and made a space in the corner where some body part was sticking out and then pulled it out. Kinda funny not to find any blood on the frame ot any feathers outside the coop. But it WAS a tiny thing, hardly a mouthful. I am just afraid now that if she has figured out that the chickens are FOOD, not just things to chase, she may be more eager to get to them. SO I moved the coop out to the edge of the yard and fixed her underground fence so she can go all around the coops, but not up to them.Hopefully, this way, she can still deter predators. Since she goes in the house at nite, I will most likely put one of my other dogs out with the collar on.
