    Hi all! We are a family of 5 from Massachusetts who are new owners of 3 Plymouth Rock chickens. We lost 1 due to a neighbors dog this weekend and were so sad but plan on getting more soon.
    Looking forward to connecting with others and super thankful for such a great resource for chickens (this website already saved one of our hens who had a respiratory infection. We treated her and she is back to her perky self).

    Greetings from Kansas, Kara, and :welcome. Great to have you with us! Sorry to hear about your chicken. Dogs can do real damage to a flock. Good luck and best wishes with your new flock additions. :)

    Glad to hear BYC has already been of help to you. Please do realize your neighbors dog will keep coming back unless something stops him.
