My heart is breaking for you. I have grown to love the girls even though I have never seen them but through your eyes and stories. I was rooting for Pepples with her leg. I was so afraid that the other chickens would pick on her.

We will miss your Chicken Chronicles. and a big hug to you {{{{Hug}}}}You are not alone with your pain.

Who knew that someone else losing her chickens would be so sad? So sorry, CVS.

I'm so sorry, CWS.

That incident is why I don't care for dogs. It's not the dogs, but the owners who won't train them to behave.

So sorry! I'll miss all the stories and chicken dialog but I'm sure you will miss your dear pets tremendously.

So sad that you will not have the girls. Sorry too for the ones lost. I hope you can find good homes for the rest. I will miss the stories. :(

I have the girls listed for sale. I have s/one interested in Millie, Penny, Henny, Eggatha, and Prudence. It breaks my heart. The DH is not willing to manage his dog (the dog has also killed a neighbour's cat and kittens), has growled at me...etc The DH is not willing to manage his dog or train it--it is a good dog--right. I said that he should consider leash-walking, crating, not letting the dog out on the property when the girls are out. He can't (won't) do that to the dog--instead he will let it kill my chickens. I have tolerated said dog--and, I love dogs, but not this dog--he is not a nice dog, but could be if his owner would be willing to set boundaries and train him--not willing to do that. Killing Pebbles and Mini Millie was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I need the DH to help with stuff around the house, but he won't do anything re: managing his chicken-killing dog and I can't put more of the girls at risk. I have requested that the people who buy them buy them as pets....we'll see. And yes, it hurts that the dog is more important than I am or our relationship.

Mods, could you please close this thread tomorrow? Thanks.
