I went outside and saw these two dogs tearing apart my chickens. 3 were dead including my 2 beautiful silver laced wyandotte roosters and my one and only frizzled cochin named Butter by my daughter because of her beautiful golden color. The dogs were still chasing a chicken and one of my birds had jumped into the pond to get away from them. I went after these little bastards and started yelling at them. One of them turned around and tried to bite me. The other jumped in the pond to get away from me. I yelled at the one that tried to bite me and it hightailed it back to it's house. I was really mad now. I went back in the house to put some clothes on so I could talk to my neighbor (I work nights and had been napping on the couch). I pulled on some jeans and a shirt and went back outside and the dachshund had one of my black australorps pinned to the ground. I thought it was dead but when I grabbed a piece of trim wood and started advancing on the dog, the chicken limped off into some brush and the dog hightailed it back to the hogwire fence but I was faster than she could get her fat little body through. I got up to her and she turned and bared her teeth and snapped at me so I swung and missed and she turned and ran back away from the fence further onto my property. About that time I heard my neighbor calling the dogs because he realized they were out of their fenced in area. I yelled at him that his dog was on my property and both had just killed several chickens. I introduced myself to him because we had never met before. I told him his other dog was somewhere on my property and he was welcome to come and get her. He climbed the fence and went to find her. I spotted her at the far end of my yard next to the fence where my pasture starts and pointed her out to him. He went after her and I went to find the rest of my chickens. It took 20 minutes for them to come out of hiding. Most had their beaks open and were panting heavily. I put them all back into their coop and my neighbor came over and said his dog wouldn't come to him and had run into some brush. He said he was surprised they had killed the chickens because they had never seen chickens before and that they were probably just playing with them. I told him there was large chunks of flesh ripped off of their bodies and that they weren't playing with them when I saw them. He said he needed to go mow his yard and that the other dog would probably come back eventually. He didn't apologize or offer to compensate me for my dead chickens. That's what pisses me off more than the dogs getting out and killing them. My chickens are beautiful creatures and I feed them fresh corn and watermelon. One of the cockerels that was killed had begun to come to me and play whenever I went out to feed them. The frizzled cochin was just beginning to really get her frizzed feathers in and was turning out quite beautiful. I really wanted to kill those dogs and if I had connected with that piece of wood, I would have done some serious damage. I don't know what to do with my neighbor, their house is for sale and I have lived here two months and never spoken to them. They are the only neighbor I can see from my secluded acreage. I just can't believe he didn't even say he was sorry. My poor chickens. I started with 16 and between hawks and wiener dogs, I am down to 11.
