    If the nabors dog killed the last 3...it will come back to kill again. Do your chickens have a safe run? Maybe let them out when you are there to watch them.....be carefull.

    If the dog has done killed 3, he will come back and kill the others. They need to be in a run.

    It will make no difference at all that these are 4 months old, and the ones the dog killed are only 3 months old. No chicken, at any age, is a match for a chicken killing dog. Are you good friends with this neighbor? Do they know their dog killed your chickens? Do you have a .22 rifle you are handy with??? Perhaps you could assist your chickens by getting rid of the dog? Otherwise, they need a secure pen, if you want to save them. Good Luck.
