Taylor

Oh dear! That will teach them to keep the chickens in a different part of the yard...

I hope it doesn't cause problems with your new neighbors!

Benjamin

OMG on you serious? This isn't a joke? What did the neighbor say? Have any pictures? (not serious, you know, on that last one)

Pam

Taylor and Benjamin - I haven't spoken to the new neighbor yet. He doesn't live there yet, it's a 'fixer-upper' that he's working on. I hope to talk to him Saturday, confess my dogs sins - I did talk with him a week or so ago and tell him that my dogs were obsessed with his two hens, and sort of warned him. I had NO IDEA that the chicken would be so...stupid...and that instead of walking two inches away from the fence (where she would have been safe) that she instead got closer to the fence and stuck her lovely head through the wire mesh (my dogs heads couldn't fit through it).

And no Benjamin, I wish it was a joke - but it wasn't. It's my life with The Pointer Sisters.

Well, chickens are pretty stupid except for Robin's. How could the dog resist but...ugh! I think the new owner should perhaps move the chicken house but, even then, dogs and chickens don't really mix.

Pam

Layanee, I'm with you. I confessed my dog's sins yesterday - and the guy said first 'Chickens are stupid.' It's gonna me a stressful mix I'm afraid.

Kim

Well, at least he seemed pretty reasonable? :) Maybe he'll want to think about putting something a little more solid along that lower foot of the fence... you know, just in case. Nice of you to confess to him so he doesn't have to worry, but... I really hope he's reasonable enough to refuse your offer of buying him a new hen. Like you said, your dogs couldn't get their heads through the fence, so methinks it's the chicken's fault!

And, I'm sorry, but I have to ask since I'm curious... did she eat the head? (Hey, at least I waited until after most other people stopped by and read the comments...)

Pam

Kim, he did refuse my offer of a new hen (mainly because it ends up that he gets them for free from his Dad). And no - the head wasn't eaten by the dogs - but I think it's more because I got them inside quickly, before they could. They've been obsessed with the area along the fence where 'it' happened ever since. It's a pain.

Oh, Pam - glad the neighbor guy realizes the general category of bird brains includes chickens!

Somehow your post made me think of that Whack a mole game where the animal head pops up and gets whacked with a hammer... could imagine the hen's head coming in and out of various spots on the fence until a Pointer Sister won the game.
