    So sorry for you...unfortunately it's something dogs do. I don't have chooks but if mine see a bird in the yard they chase it and the bird will fly away...but as cats can't fly they don't get away.

    Nero is the reason why we don't have chooks. He was only a puppy when he managed to kill one and it's so deeply imbedded in his mind (chooks = balls on feet) that he simply cannot be trusted with them. Recently one of our neighbours bought some and I noticed they're free roaming ... no gate at their garden and the chooks wander out and about quite happily. It's a disaster waiting to happen

    Yeah,

    my biggest fear is that I go to the trouble to re-fortify my chook pen, spend money and time on raising a new batch of chickens, only to have Serena or Bruno do it all over again. I have no doubt that presented with the opportunity Serena would happily kill again. I am going to replace the chicken wire with stiff standard cylone fencing, the kind that is used around parks, schools, cricket nets etc. I'll bury the wire and put in a properly strengthened door. I know how strong Staffords are so I have to be sure its secure enough to protect my chooks.
    Miss the taste of home grown eggs!

    cheers
