My flock has recently been attacked several times by a neighbor's dog. We have been in touch with the neighbor and he is working, albeit poorly, to resolve the issue. The dog has previously killed dozens of local chickens - all belonging to people far more patient and tolerant than me. So far, all of ours have survived, but we've spent precious many hours tending them from injuries and have seen egg production decrease by 2/3 as of today since the issues began. I don't wish any harm on the dog, which is very sweet and amiable to things other than chickens, and really just needs more responsible care from his owners, who don't have a fence for their 80lb pit mix. However, we have begun to anxiously anticipate greater losses. Speaking to a farming mentor in my community, I was advised to bill the neighbors for our financial impact, as he has in the past when dogs have killed his birds. We are attempting to make a business of our little homestead, and sell our eggs for a small profit. Our chicks have been raised from day-old, fed organic homemade whole grain feed, and have generally been pampered and loved to the best of our ability. Our feed costs average $5/head per month. Some of our fancier fowl were $20/head as a chick. We've invested so much time, care, even some vet bills, in our flock. They have expected future production. How do you calculate that into a reasonably price to charge someone for killing your birds? Has anyone ever been in this situation before?
