    Not sure where the right place to post this question might be, but since the occasion was my neighbor's Jack Russell terrorist, I'll try here.

    I have the photos and some of the bodies.

    What would you consider fair market value for:

    1) An easter-egger pullet about three weeks from laying age -- from a highly productive laying hen and a purebred Ameraucana rooster?

    2) A fourteen week-old French guinea hen? (One found hiding in pasture torn up, two more still MIA)

    If it makes a difference, I do sell eggs @ $3.50/dozen, and the Ameraucana eggs in each carton are a big selling point.

    If you look at what your getting per dozen and how many eggs you would have gotten, I wouldnt be hesitant to at the very least ask for 15 bucks for each bird you lost. You can possibly find replacements for that price without worry.

    Don't forget to charge them for ammo you need to buy for the next time the dog visits. [​IMG]

    I asked about fair market value for specific birds.

    I did not solicit advice for initiating a range war with my neighbors by gleefully murdering their dog.

    If you enjoy living in a state of simmering angry conflict with others in your community, well, that's your choice.

    I try to have slightly different relations with the people who surround me, and who staff the fire engines, snow plows, ambulances, and a police cruisers of my community.
