    Came home from church tonight and couldn't find my only Araucana hen. The rooster was in the coop along with all the rest of my Marans. We searched all over and then found her remains. Our dog had killed her. I am so sad. Our dog has never shown any signs of aggression towards the chickens. Little Chipper was such a friendly bird. My youngest son cried himself to sleep.

    So sorry!

    My hens are jumping on and over my dog all of the time... I hope she never turns on them.
