    Have any kids here had to deal with bs like this? My mom is dating
    this loser she met at a gas station in Newark. I begged your not to
    date him but she is anyways. Last night he came over with his pitbull
    looking mangy dog. He let it outside in our little fenced yard while my
    silkies were out there. I screamed not to do it but he didn't listen to me.
    2 of my silkies got away but one was killed. The dog attacked it like
    it was a stuffed animal. Him and my mom both acted like it was no big
    deal. My moms x boyfriend gave me those silkies so I think the new boyfriend
    is jelus. One of my friends in the place we live told me to put antifeese
    in the dogs water and it would kill it. I won't let it kill another one of my
    silkies. Sorry if this sounds white trashy.

    Sounds like you and your mom and her new bf need to sit down and have a straight forward discussion and talk. Sounds like communication here isn't going so well. You can't go killing other animals just because their owners were irresponsible. Best thing to do is to try to be level headed and get the adults in the situation to also be level headed and work out a solution.

    Quote:Yup, rat poison is good but will take a while. Antifreeze is good but get the
    stuff that says 50/50, not the predilluted stuff. The dog will suffer with either
    one of those so don't do it. The dog didn't know any better.

    You sound like a younger girl and if the "emo" in your name means what I think
    it does don't let this affect you. It's not your fault. We can't choose our parents.

    Try some hot sauce on the birds. Hot sauce is nasty for dogs but won't hurt
    your birds. Rub some on some feathers and rub it in the dogs eyes next time
    you get a chance. Then put a little bit on your birds so the dog can smell it.
    The dog probably won't do it again. The key is to really get him good at first
    so he(assuming a he) knows the sauce will hurt.

    If you want to get rid of him just get some used underwear from your friends
    and put them in his car where your mom can find them.

    Sorry you have to deal with this.

    Sorry to hear about your silkie. It is tragic that some people are so irresponsible. But that does not mean you should be irresponsible.
    Antifeeze is a cruel death. Plus it is not the dogs fault. The dog had no say so in its ownership.
    If mom and bf won't sit down and talk with you and understand how you feel about your chickens you will just have to be the responsible one. When bf and dog are around make sure your babies are in safe place.

    I too am sorry for your loss, but it's not the dogs fault, please don't take your frustration out on him, that just makes you an animal abuser.

    Thanks everyone. I want that dog dead but can't hurt it. I love animals
    too much. Daryll should have kept him under control but he was drinking.
    One of my friends already put a lit cigareete out on the dog before I can stop

    The girl a few units over get around and leaves her thongs on her back line.
    I am going to borrow a pair and put them in Darylls car.

    Very sorry for your loss. Must have been awful to see. I think you should talk to your mom and let her know how much your pet silkies mean to you. She should understand that men may come and go in life but your daughter is forever. Every parent should remember that their kids are the most important thing in their life.
    May want to keep your birds penned for a while, not sure if the dog will be back.

    I personally like the "underwear in his car" idea.
