    My brother's SBT - ate all their family chooks. My niece left the gate open to their fort knox.

    Deja vu - when I was my niece's age - or a bit older, I had budgies, and my little sister - left the door open.

    Ironically - the budgie avairy got converted to a chook house...

    Update on the chickens

    Gosh its a madhouse here...

    Have had the baby chickens (6 weeks)in a box the garage (attached to house) for a few nights as its been quite cold and I was worried about them getting too cold in the outside shed, as fort knox is not finished and they are still to young to be out in the open.

    So, as there is a door from the house to the garage, i put a little lock on it and a large sign "CHOOKS IN HERE - KEEP THIS FORKING DOOR LOCKED AT NIGHT"

    I so bring them into the garage today from there outside day playpen...and lock the door and go out for an hour. When i came home, i let the dogs in and went for a pee, came out to see 3 dogs gone and the garage door open...............

    Race in their in time to see one climbing into the box and the other 2 waiting for leftovers...

    Anyway....just got there in the nick of time, maisie survived my throwing her across the room and the chicky babes are ok... THIS TIME!

    Not sure what happened but someone must have left the door open when i went out...sheeeeeeeeeeesh!

    My boss's 2 dogs killed one of her chickens once, she tied it to a piece of string, then tied each end of the string to a dog and left them like that for a week, with a rotting chicken between them. They haven't touched a chicken again, so it did the job but my god did they stink!!

    Don't know. I think our Nero would have a lot of fun with a rotting chook attached to him. I have given up on the idea of chooks after he killed one of our neighbours chooks. Unfortunately he killed not just any chook ... but the favourit one. The pet. The one with a name!!

    After that all our attempts to get him off poultry was wasted. He just loooooves chooks and will not stop for anything or anyone if he sees a chance to chase one. He once ripped the lead out of my hand and ran into a property with free roaming chooks as the unlucky owner just opened the gate when we walked past. I had no time to apologise but just ran after him. Luckily got to him just in time when he had cornerd a terrified chook into a corner of the shed. Having to explain this to a more or less speechless owner still standing at their gate was one of the more embarassing moments of my life.

    My grandfather used the dead chick around the neck trick out on his farm. I would have been around 4 or 5 but can still smell that poor dog. Pheeeeeweee! But it did work. Absolutely chick proofed.
