    Re: Woke up to this!

    That sucks man. I lost a dozen to a dog a couple seasons ago, and just last month a friend of mine lost 30 corded cocks to a pack of dogs.

    A lot of heartbreak in this sport let me tell you.

    I had this happen a few yrs. ago. I found dog owner,it was a neighbor.I made a claim with their home owners Insurance and received full compensation.I had to prove the fowls value so I sent copies of colored adds from the Game Cock! This worked for me,may work for you?

    Re: Woke up to this!

    That's a Horrible feeling, I went through that about 2 seasons ago. Makes you second guess yourself, I almost lost everything..... but think of it as an opportunity to Start Fresh. That's exactly what we did, that and the fact that we took justice into our hands on the owner of the 4 dogs. Don't Give up Partner, let me know how WE can All help U

    Re: Woke up to this!

    Hey, whatever you do, don't take justice in your own hands...don't assume you know the dogs that did it based on proximity...remember, having dogs is not against the law whereas depending on your location, that dog owner can cause you a few problems...also, that dog owner could be like me...my dogs are part of my family & anybody that hurt somebody in my family, well, let's just say, that would be a one time mistake...

    Justice can only go so far but remember revenge is a Dish best Served Cold. Here in my county we have the Right to defend our livestock against Varmint. Owners who don't pay mind to there pets and let them run around carelessly, well then to me those So called Pets are Varmints.

    Re: Woke up to this!

    Damn bro this hurts my heart. I know the feeling, my Madigan Claret trio got attacked by a pitbull while they were sitting on full clutches & they were my first good bloodline. Thank goodness I bred the rooster to my Ray Price Black hen & raised a stag & a pullet. I cocked him out & he died after winning his 4th fight. Lol thank goodness I bred him back to his momma after his 1st fight & was only able to raise a pullet that I bred him to after his 3rd fight (he won 2 on the same day). Out of that I was only able to raise a stag & a pullet again. Which is now my Black broodcock & broodhen because guess what, the original Ray Price Black hen & daughter got killed by the same pitbull. Its my brothers dog lol we still have that a$$h013 but he hasnt killed any for the last 4 years. & I cant do nothing about it because Im close with my brother & he doesn’t wanna get rid og his dog so he chained him up in his kennel. Anyways bro, I hope you recover, I swear it happens to everyone at least once. This is why Im making broodstock before battle crosses.

    Aaaaarrrrrgghhhhh!!!! That's horrible man. Get a good rednose pit puppy and raise him around birds, like he's a bird not a dog. You won't regret it. My ol Rufus kills anything and everything that's come for chicken, best chicken dog ever

    I know that feeling all to well man. I lost over 40 something the day before thanksgiving 2016. My luck would have it the owner of the dogs was an old crack head lady, couldn't get any compensation. I left it be.

    Re: Woke up to this!

    a roll of fence and some poles is cheaper than waking up to dead birds its a little work however worth every penny 2X4 welded wire runs $80 a 100 foot on sale just catch it t-post most time people have them laying around will give away so a lot of times it comes down the the other thing that many have that dont realize like the funny bone called lazy..... i have brain disease and i just put another 3 acs on to my yard with help of my son n law bought 4 rolls of fence and had get 10 bags of concrete for H post to nail the ends too... i use 2X4 to keep small animals out however they sell cattle fence 330 foot sometimes at good price if a man wants to raise chickens better get a fence or when one wakes up to a mess then only 1 person to blame yourself and let me tell you just because you have fence that will not keep coyotes out or bobcats so that's why you need a dog... my early days no dog with a fence one night they got me for about 50 cocks i was sick for a week... lesson learned...

    you can find chain link and posts on craigslist for the price of pulling it up sometimes. Don’t get much cheaper than that, even if it’s a little rough, it’s better than nothing. Cigar, y’all should grab rolls of 2x4 if you’re ever passing thru here, we can get it for a bit better than that.

    Sorry My Friend...
    This happened to me several years ago, I had sixty five of the best sweater/kelso stags that I have ever raised, on cords, an old gal down the street had seventy rescue dogs living in the house with her, seen the sheriff at her place one day, stopped to inquire about her insurance, the sheriff almost locked me up for harassment because I was on her property, she was hooked up with the city taking their rescue dogs. I took her to court, the lawyers said I needed to build a seven foot fence to keep her dogs out, I did get some compensation, not enough to ever cover feed bill.. It ended up that was my fault that the dogs killed my gamefowl, what a country we live in today... Thanks for your time.

    Re: Woke up to this!

    PS to the post I just made..
    I had a four foot fence around my yard, the dog that killed all my fowl could climb a fence faster than I can, but I had no dog for protection, needless to say I did get a yard dog... The lawyers said it was my place to build a fence to keep her dogs out, I lost sixty nice stags two years hard work, and all the feed I was out.

    I do have fence all around a 5 foot fence on one whole side with spikes, on another 8 foot, but on the side with the door don't have spikes cause of my children they like to go in there. Dogs ripped 24 fence off the poles. Yes i do have to start over the clarets which where my brothers can't get those back for sure, the blues either had been working on those for a few years had them where wanted. They only left me 1 brood cock he was in a fly pen.

    I had shot a bunch of dogs before, had warned everybody around this area and posted on fb if seen any on the property they'd be dead and placed on there front porch. They didn't think much of it guess but they never got anymore dogs after that. Its the new people around here.
