I opened the vertical blinds this morning to see our dog Lady attacking the chickens! :shock_tb: (I need a steam-coming-out-my-ears smiley for here, because that’s exactly how I felt!)
I called Stephen, just seething. He told me to let Buddy (our other dog) off his chain. I wasn’t sure how that would help me catch Lady, but it worked. Buddy ran right down there and chased Lady right to me like he knew that’s what I wanted.
Somehow she worked a hole in her fence and got out this morning. She got the lower doors of the condo open, and let 6 of the new babies out. In the time it took to dump Little man in his crib and run out there, she had killed four of them.
Stephen had only put 6 babies in the lower condo because the doors weren’t as solid, and I’m glad now that that’s the way he did it.
I did catch one, and took care of the four that Lady killed. I couldn’t find the sixth one. I hope she’s just hiding.
I came inside, and as soon as Little man went down for a nap, I sent an email out to Freecycle to find a new home for Lady. This is the second time she’s killed our chickens (the first time, they flew right into her pen), and it just can’t happen again. I’ve already gotten one response, but I’m waiting to see how many more emails I receive about her before I make a decision. We’d love to have her gone today!
