Uggghhh...I am so sad and feel so responsible. I brought my chicks outside for the first time today. They are a week old and were loving being outside. I had them inside a little fencing in the yard and one of our boxers came over. She just stood there and stared at them and I was holding on to her so she could watch and get used to them because she's never been around chicks or anything besides birds. Well my two production reds happened to come over by her inside the fence and she lunged knocking the fencing over and killed them!! I think she squished them with her paw - it all happened so fast and I was screaming. My brother in law was there and he immediately grabbed the two chicks and the dog. I just feel so guilty - it was senseless.
