that just stinks lindz and they will be back. again and again until you have no more free meals. I hate that aspect of predatory behavior, wish they were more nomadic, take one, move on. dogs that kill livestock can roam very far in search of meals, over a mile. it's sometimes very difficult to locate them after an attack... I remember a few years back, I was driving to work, and saw these 2 dogs running along the roadside, it's 55 mph... I thought, oh bummer, those dogs will be hit... turns out, those 2 dogs went up another half mile or so to my friends farm where they killed 14 lambs and 12 chickens. her husband shot and killed one, he grazed the other, and it took weeks to find him despite the dog having returned to it's home with a clearly visible injury. then it took months to have the dog removed and put down. I really hope you can find the owners quickly, and they should pay for replacing the birds. they should also know that you will shoot to kill if those dogs are loose on your property ever again. I love the setup for the brood, OK. it's just wonderful, spacious... and yes, as quickly as they grow... they need every bit of room. just wait til they are a month old, and all still trying to fit under Mama! she'll be floating on top of a pile of babies... it's extremely funny to see Peach with huge chicks poking out in all directions! and the goofy happy look on her puffed up face... she loves it, so will RK!
