My chickens free range over our hill back in the woods and they stayed back there untill our neighbors started feeding them up in their yard. Which I didn't like because the rule was only to feed them at the coop so the would stay back there. The people 2 doors down have a crazy dog who is left outside tied to a tree and has been there since I moved in 7 yrs ago. I feel bad for the dog because I have never see it off the leash and it barks all day and all night and is outside in the winter. But It killed one of my chickens today. I can not blame anyone because I let them free range and it did go up in his yard. I just wish my neighbors directly next door never fed them so they would not have got in the habbit of going over to their yard. Now I have to buils a run for them. I dont want to fence them in but I dont want anymore getting killed. I am sad. They are all golden commets and I couldn't even tell witch one it was. I just wanted to vent my frustrations.
