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.
