So this morning I received a text from my roommate. His dog killed my chicken... As most of you know chickens are family! We raise them and we spend time and appreciate the bond between human and poultry. Even if they do end up going to the dinner table no one wants to know that their chickens met their end in a disaster. Now I have backyard chickens and we do have dogs but usually they are supervised so that nothing happens. So Elanor is dead and she was the head of the flock so she was a pretty good layer. I had the chickens before my roommate moved in and he assured me that he was going to spend time training his new puppy to guard the chickens so that we would never have this problem. Well he hasn't been training her like he promised and the dog did what its instinct told it to. I'm not mad at the dog at all I'm mad at my roommate. Not to mention the reason the dog was not supervised is because he fell asleep the night before with the back door open! So anyone and any pest could have just wandered right in through the night. If my story isn't making very good sense then I'm sorry. I'm just distraught. If feel like he should pay for a new set of chickens and feed at minimum.... But is that too much?
