    I brought my Hens home 3 weeks ago. My dog jumped into the cage and squished two of them. I think my mom felt sorry for me and bought me 5 more hens. I now have 14 hens. They range in age from three weeks to five or six weeks. I can't wait for them to get into their new coop probably next week.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined the flock! I'm sorry to hear about the mishap with the dog. I hope it's behaving itself and staying away from the chicks now!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. It's usually best if dogs/cats and chicks NEVER meet. It usually ends up very badly for the chicks.
