Hello from Arkansas.
I've had chickens for several years now, the flock ranges from as little as
4 to sometimes 20.
I HAD 14 chicks till last night when the dog broke into the pen and killed
everyone one of them.
If he had been a stray I would have ended his life there.
But he is the wifes dog so I just had to secure the coop better.
MY hens hatched them so I'm sure they can do it again.
