    Are you sure they aren't going into your neighbor's yard on their own?

    Go over and tell him your rooster is missing...."must have gotten out". Tell him you think that he might be in his back yard and offer to go get him. I wouldn't confront him because the rooster might have gotten there on his own. He might not even know it is back there or he might have just thought it was a lost roo.
    Good luck.

    Glad you got your roo back, sorry to hear that the other one was taken. Did they take the birds out of your yard? Or did they " just take advantage" of the bird having found it's way into their yard ? If they took it and you have proof/witnesses, you can try to report it as theft/trespassing. If your roos wandered off they can claim they were stray/loose...... If the neighbor knew it was your roo and still killed him or if he stole him he is a lowlife in my opinion. At least give notice once that your birds are on his property..... Either way, I think it's either time for a fence/checking on fence if you have one or having a safe enclosed run for your chickens. If you have your birds in a secure area and think he may have trespassed to take them, maybe a gamecam posted for future and/or locked gates/coop/run would be an option for you. [​IMG] Sorry this happened, I'd be livid.....Hope it works out somehow without further loss of chickens !!

    Are the roos able to just walk out of your yard, or fly over the fence. if they flew out maybe you could clip thier wings. good luck with hungry niehbors.[​IMG]
