    Wow! Ok well we had out first huuugeee scare today!! Heres the story!

    Well I went to the kitchen to check supper and I go to the back door and look out the window and what do I see my Golden Retriever and Italian Greyhound chasing one of my poor hens around the yard. Luckily my dogs heard the tone in my voice when I went running out there and they imeidately backed off (whew!). Luckily I got out there in time so all that was lost some feathers! [​IMG]

    I checked her for any wounds but didnt find any just missing feathers. [​IMG]

    I put her up in the coop make sure she has water and is settled down and go to walk back to the house. When I see my worst nightmare! My neighbors standing right by where I had gotten the chicken......we arent supposed to have them where we live [​IMG]

    Luckily our neighbors have chickens too. I just hope they dont report us to the HOA!

    I dont now what I will do if I lose my babies! [​IMG]

    Anything that I can do for her that I havent?? [​IMG]

    If your neighbors have illegal chickens too, I don't see why they would report you. If they did, you'd be able to report them too. Unless you mean it was a different neighbor that saw you than the one that has chickens.
