    Last week my seven pygmy goats (2 pregnant) were killed [​IMG]by a pack of dogs roaming the area.

    Now I have owls after my chickens. (sigh)

    I have exchanged sleep for ammo, but have not had the privelage to avenge the goats yet. Every dog has his day, I hope it is soon.
    Not sure how to handle the owls though...[​IMG]

    Are the owls getting your chickens at night? If so, your best bet is to put them inside at night. If it's during the day and your chickens free range, maybe you could make sure that they have cover to run under if an aerial predator is in the area.
