Ok, I need some help with this guys. We *just* got our chickens (21 of them) yesterday paid $4 each for feathered out birds so that we didn't have to worry about brooding our first batch of chickens. We got them home to the coop I had spent days on. Went inside the house for 15 min and came out to 21 dead birds and 3 very guilty looking dogs! I dont' know how but they managed to get *through* the chicken wire and had a feild day. Needless to say, I had to control our impulse to just get rid of the dogs as they don't contribute to the table but the chickens are supposed to. Has anyone else had this problem with their dogs? How did you handle/solve it? Is there anything that I can do to train my dogs to leave them alone? or now that they have a taste for chicken am I screwed? Thanks for your help, Jay Oh, does anyone in the central NC area have feathered out birds for sale? I seem to be in the market again.
