Nettle: That's my gripe most days w/ the dogs except mine eat the chickens if they catch them! A few weeks ago a fox waited in the morning until I let the dogs in and them killed my flock. Now I need to start over again w/ chicks ... Grr! Couldn't even eat them as I was afraid the fox might be carrying some desease. Now back to more predator proofing and an electric fence. Next I'll be bitching cause I got shocked!
