I was just waiting for this. The neighbors are very good friends and they have a large lab mix who is a great dog, so they insisted that he'd never hurt the chickens. We've kept them locked up while he's over, and he has an invisible fence to keep him in his own yard, but the neighbors brought him over today while they were visiting in the yard and the chickens were free ranging. He slipped out of sight for just a minute and got two of the chickens. We found only one body, but one giant pile of feathers and she is missing. Would the dog eat the WHOLE chicken? We can't find a trace of her, but we really don't want the kids to find the body. They are absolutely devastated. So are the neighbors, for that matter. Lesson learned. They have promised that the dog will never set foot in our yard again unless they call ahead and know the chickens are in their coop, and they will replace the birds, but you can't replace little friends. I'm nervous to let them free range at all any more, but I will because they are so happy out in the yard. So sad. They were just 17 weeks old. RIP Wendy and Alice.
