:( :mad: Sorry to hear this Divia. I have never heard of a dog attacking chickens before, usually it's foxes over here. Theft from cars is sadly all too common though. A friend of mine had her satnav stolen from her car.

Thanks. Yeah some are OK. I'm keeping a close eye on them.

Sorry about the chickens. My sister has lost a lot of chickens to raccoons, of all things! Also about the iPod. I've had all kinds of stuff stolen from my car. When my car was stolen several years ago, I gave up! It's bike or subway for me.

Sorry about your chickens, Divia. We have lost chickens over the years, usually to stoats which create a bloody havoc horrible to sort out and involving having to kill the ones that are just gruesomely injured. Only once had a dog attack- the neighbours' lovely friendly little terrier who brought me one of our chickens he'd just killed, looking very pleased with himself :(

Sounds like you had one of those days!

That's awful news about your chickens, Divia. Hope they have recovered. We used to keep chickens but don't any more due to the upset it caused when the foxes got them.

Got a call last night that one of my cousins was killed in a car wreck yesterday. He was only 50 or 51. We are a fairly large tribe of cousins, and he is the first of my generation in my family to pass away, so I'm having kind of a hard time processing it.
