Yesterday it rained all day here, so I didn't go out to check on the chickens. My husband and I usually both check on them during the day, but I saw that their ramp was down (it raises and lowers) so I assumed he had checked on them and they were all accounted for. Apparently, two of them (Red and Penny) had escaped their temporary chicken wire enclosure. When I let the dog out for FIVE MINUTES while I got some laundry out of the dryer, apparently she attacked them. My husband came home that evening to check on them and found Red dead, and Penny severely injured. Penny didn't make it through the night. :'( I just feel kind of responsible. I should have checked on them even though it was raining. The next step is to make a permanent, dog proof enclosure! Suggestions? The dog will not bother them in their fence, I have watched her. But if we are not there to keep her in check and the chickens are free rangeing, I guess she'll go after them. I don't let the chickens free range unless we are in the yard. Is it too soon to clip their wings? They are about 6 weeks old. I think they may have flown out.
