    Yup, VVG my new ones - one of the new ones survived - but she's in shock I think, so I doubt she'll last through the night. I can't believe the dog could shift a paving slab, gravel and wood to dig through like that. As it was so powerful I know that as soon as he got hold the birds they'd have been killed quite fast.

    I'm so angry about it.

    Oh, and the dog got out of a bathroom window, jumped down onto a garage roof, then down - then made its way to our property.

    *deep breath*.

    Right really off now

    I would be too, which is why I'd have him by the throat and make him clean it...but probably best not to listen to me there. I would be very tempted to call the RSPCA and report it still, but get the money off him first. The dog warden will not pursue this, the RSPCA just might. The thing is this dog could return if he thinks there is another chance. Which will now worry you senseless with two tots to think of. Have you brought the survivor inside?

    You hear about dogs doing this kind of stuff and getting a hold of Children.
    Still a bad series of events but at least that wasn't the case this time!
    Some owners ey, give the rest of them such a bad name

    The trouble is it isn't the owners who get a bad name, it's the dogs. Most of them have been neglected, badly trained, etc. etc.

    Hello Chris
    I have just read this and am really sad for you and your family. I am sure you are all in shock along with your surviving chicken. One of mine was in shock for a week after an attack and failed to eat. Had to be put on critical care formula before she started eating again.
