I free range my chickens.. and we live in the country. We have never had a problem with dogs bothering our chickens... Except for today!! I caught THE dog in action. She killed 3 of my birds; a Polish hen, an Easter Egger, and my favorite.. the Blue Cochin, which was my rooster. All my chickens have become our pets. They all are docile, gentle, and sweet! I chased the dog off our property and gathered the rest of the chickens and locked them up in the coop. I talked to all the neighbors and this dog belongs to no one.. Hmm? I called the local dog warden and all he suggests I do is to call him again if I see THE dog again. It has been pretty upsetting.. especially to see feathers all over our yard. The dog did not even bother to eat them.. she killed them for the fun of it! I am so dissapointed and sad about this!
