Disaster at our place

Today a big dog jumped out of the adjacent stream over a fence and systematically slaughtered our three chooks!
The dog owner was upset and apologetic.  I tried to explain that a dog with hunting tendencies off the lead could do the same thing to a child and maybe the off-lead in the park is too risky.
Meanwhile three carcases had to be buried, we have no eggs, and the cost of three more hens will be over $120 by the time we travel to the supplier.  We are sad and shocked!

  1. Did you get gold plated chooks? Perhaps you are thinking of golden eggs. It’s a goose that does those.
