Ive lived where I am for 4 years. for three of those years the neighbors JRT comes and poops in my yard, knocks over my trash and barks non stop and I can tell she is outside. I know its a she-not cause I have ever gotten close but because they advertise puppies every so often. I only got my chickens this past spring- and only started free ranging mid summer. The neighbors apparently got chickens much more recently and they seem to prefer my yard. there is a hole in their fence and I cant really get to it cause it is all grown up on my side. On theirs it is exposed due to the cows they have I imagine. I drove up the driveway and left a small roll of fence and a note saying I don't trust my dogs with the chickens and I know when mine are out but not theirs and if they keep coming in my yard might get killed. I put a piece of wood where the break was so they could see it from their side to fix. that was a week ago and no luck. So again today- I had to chase them back home. A lot of my property is hilly and they come downhill through brush. I can not chase them all the way back home. Last week one day they were mingled with my girls when I went to put them to bed after ranging. Will my guys bail out on me> ? I want to think not since its his girls coming to my place and when my girls range they stay mostly on a different part of the property than where the fence break is but I still worry. If I need to fix the gap myself it will mean hacking down shrubbery/brush (wineberry and rassberry growth and small trees) that I am just not physically able to do easily. IF the chances of them abandoning here for there are slim- I may simply let happen whatever may happen and if I find a dead one on my property the dogs get an extra meal. Do they stay loyal?
