Hey, I'm best friends with my neighbor and her husband is also great. Recently, the house across the street went up for sale and her brother-in-law (husbands brother) bought it. I had 5 new red star that are 10 weeks and out with 6 BR every day to free range. I stay at home and have fenced in a huge portion of our 2.5 acres for the chickens and some new gardens. Well, the new neighbors have a little yippy dog that has now killed two of my babies. The first time I was in the yard and couldn't catch him in time as he chased the girls around. This week he found a place he could slip through the fence caught one and then rested beneath one of my apple trees to pluck it. I'm so mad and hurt and don't know what to do as they are related to my best friend!!?? The worst part is he hasn't even acknowledged my loss. Both times it was just his kids home and they told him. The first time he yelled across the street, "hey I here i owe you a chicken!?" This time he has said nothing.
