As if this week hasn't been bad enough with the bats, lack of sleep, and the communist take-over of America, someone's cast-off dog killed my two Easter Eggers Martha and Cricket this afternoon.
I went to feed the others an afternoon snack and noticed that those two were nowhere in sight. I opened the coop door and there was the dog having a nice snooze in the wood shavings. The stiffening corpses of Martha and Cricket lay in the dirt out back.
The dog looks like a rottweiler mix. No tags. He took off before I could lock him in the run.
The canine now has a death warrant out for it. And I need to spend tomorrow morning hunting/ installing higher gauge wire around my run and extending the run under the coop so the remaining birds are safer and have more room.
Some Old, Some New, And All Great Too - *Thanks T-Bone*
