I am in need of some advise right now. We are trying to start our flock. I had 20 chicken now I am down to 14. My neighbors dogs will not stay in their yard. I went down last week and addressed after caught them out and on my property. She was so smart telling me maybe they should just shot all their dogs over it. She is a foster for panhanle pet savers. I love what she is doing to save all those dogs lives. But they are taking my chickens. When we let them out of the coop to free range is when it all happens. I know we could keep them locked up but how can you do that to an animal that loves their time out. Well today they got one of my roosters and a laying hen. Like I said this were not the first they have even killed two of my rabbits. Tonight I went to her door and showed her what her dogs are doing. I told her I was done being civil that we were talking matter into our own hands. After they killed my first rooster we called the sheriff out he told me we had the right to shoot if they were on my property causing harm. They paid me $15 dollars last week for my hen that had been killed. Tonight I wasn't even offered that. I'm ready to give up hope these are pets to us not just some bird. I am so upset we shouldn't have to take a dogs life to protect my animals.
