I agree Amanda, I am an owner of 21 chickens, oh... make that 16 now that two bird dogs with no licenses came on my property when I wasn't home and killed 5 of my beautiful chickens. These dogs are new in the neighborhood and have been on my property before where I had to catch them and call their owner to pick them up. The owner had promised to install an electric fence but never got around to doing so. Our sweet neighbor that lives across the street from us heard our chickens screaming and discovered the dogs were chewing and killing them. she couldn't get them to stop so she called the Police who in turn contacted the dog warden who arrived at our home appoximately 25 minutes later and took the dogs. the owner had no clue where his dogs were until my husband went to his house to tell him. He appologized but he was tld by the dog warden to make restitution before they couod be released and of course to buy licenses for them and they would be returned to their owner. The owner promised to pay us for our loss but now that he has his dogs he doens't want o pay us what we want. I think the hardest part about this is our 7 year old child is heart broken and is grieving for her chickens. She loves them just like she would love our cats or ducks. She even had a couple chickens blessed at our church. OUr chickens are traumatized and are not laying eggs very well. They are Rhode Island Reds and good egg layers but hardly anything now.
