So I moved my 4 week old babies to their new coop on Sunday and yesterday evening (Tuesday) I went to feed and water. I noticed when I walked up to the coop that one of the doors was wide open! Needless to say all 10 of them are gone. Found a few feathers and a little blood on the ground nearby. We have about 5-6 neighboorhood dogs running around all hours of the day and night. I guess they found a flaw in my coop design. I was soo mad! My 9 year old some was crying because he had named every one of them and made pets of them all. He went to sleep lastnight crying because he misses them already. Only thing I know to do is order some more and hatch them (Black Copper Marans). I still have 19 other 8 week old Welsummers but he had really taken up with the Maran chicks. Just dont know what to do about those stinking dogs. I have no idea who they belong to. Most have no collars. My mom suggested an electric fence wire around the outside of my run. Anyone else have this problem? How did you deal with it? What works and what doesnt?
