ive been with BYC for a few years now, awesome advice for new backyarders and this if us who started again after DECADES! I’d like to respond to a post a woman is having with the lab/pit chicken murderer. I live in what’s called the city, lol, but there’s an alfalfa field 4 houses down, and another one street over. I’ve been around farm animals all my life and have had my share of smaller animals. My uncle once needed to teach a dog a lesson so he used a shotgun with rock salt...it doesn’t kill the dog, it hurts like holy HELL!, and it does not infect, but the dog learns that lesson after just one episode.
